  • Glen Island Special

    Glenn Island Special is a very quick swing chart written by Eddie Durham for the Glenn Miller band, & on first hearing it you could be forgiven for thinking it to be a Basie chart. At 240 beats per minute this chart rips from start to finish. It features ad-lib solos for 2nd Trumpet & 1st Tenor & has plenty of visual appeal too, with much plunger / hat work in the Brass. The Saxes are scored for 3 Altos & 2 Tenors. The Trumpet ranges are very moderate, with lead only reaching a G. The Sax parts do require very nimble fingers. If you play to a dance crown the dancers will need a rest afterwards. Learn More
