September Song

Be the first to review this product

An unusual arrangement of this jazz standard from the Harry James Orchestra. Slow, bluesy & laid back, the chart opens with the Bari & Bass in unison, with tightly muted Trumpets over, then the Saxes layer in with a smooth contrapuntal line, then the unison Trombones pick up the melody over the same underlying Bari/Bass figures. There follows a truly inventive bridge, a tutti chorus in swing time & then Harry's soaring solo which we have written out in full.  Then everything calms down & returns to the opening theme at the end. There are no sax doubles.
