This Mardi Gras classic is presented here in an arrangement for a small trad-Jazz band. The 4-piece horn section passes the melody back-and-forth to give everyone a chance to shine before the open solos section allowing a chance to showcase your best improvisers.
Flexibility: This arrangement will work in multiple contexts. A vocal part is included with chord changes to work as a Lead Sheet and can be placed before, after, or in place of instrumental solos. Instrumental backgrounds in the solo section are intended to support the vocals, but are not ideal behind instrumental soloists.
Difficulty: None of the horn parts are very range-intensive, so a younger group of players shouldn’t need to be intimidated by range requirements. A good vehicle to showcase a vocalist or instrumentalists with a great standard!
