Written by Bill Finegan for the Glen Miller Orchestra, this number is a great example of the arranger's art. He took a simplistic tune (Yo Ho Heave Ho) & turned it into a memorable piece, famous for its central passage of unison Trombones followed four bars later by unison Trumpets repeating the same phrase, both getting ever higher in their ranges, & leading to a huge tutti finish, embellised with a cameo written 'ad-lib' solo trumpet. A true reproduction of the original. Learn More£29.50
Tail End Charlie was made famous by Miller's Army Air Force Training Command Band. The 'Tail-end Charlie' was the rear gunner in a bomber - often the first line of defence - & probably the most exposed position of any crew member. This mid-tempo swing chart has unison Saxes carrying the theme, backed by muted brass figures, building into a key-change bridge to introduce the baritone solo. The whole number reaches a peak with a written-to-sound-ad-lib trumpet solo, before the theme returns, repeating to a fade-out, with final tutti crescendo to end with. Learn More£29.50
