  • American Patrol

    This is one our specially written charts for student/amateur swing bands. In addition to the usual 8 Brass and 5 Saxes we have included optional Flutes, Clarinets and Horn in F. Very safe Brass ranges are adopted throughout. This chart broadly follows the ever popular Glen Miller version, but with no doubling in the Saxes and a simplified intro and ending.  It is in the same bright swing style throughout, with all sections playing and no solos.
