It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing
Retail Price: $45.00

This fresh setting of Ellington's immortal standard gives it a unique salsa twist! Though the vocalist (or tenor sax) is the primary feature, this chart showcases the whole band's ability to establish a convincing Latin groove. A soli featuring the vocalist, alto sax, trumpet and guitar is another highlight, along with additional solos for tenor and trumpet. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Scored in the key of Bb. Duration ca. 5:20.  standard jazz ensemble with solo vocal (tenor sax sub.)

This is one of Richie´s favorite songs. The original trio recording is on "Hubris" (ECM) and then again on "Tribute to Chet Baker". Chet recorded it numerous times. We have asked composer/arranger Jim McNeely to create a feature for solo vocal but the chart also sounds great as a flügelhorn or tenor feature. Jim creates unusual colors and amazing sounds by using just the standard big band instrumentation. Masterful! If you are looking for an arrangement with contemporary, yet warm colors, don´t look any further, this is it. 1st Tpt: C (2 ledger lines above staff). Grade 3-4
