Arranger BROWN, MICHAEL
Composer HANDY, W C
Voicing/Instrument CONCERT BAND
Publisher HAL LEONARD CORPORATION
Based on the famous Canadian Brass version by master arranger Luther Henderson, here is a wonderful adaptation for concert band by Michael Brown. Opening with a bluesy medium swing feel, the tuba section is featured on the melody along with a small group of players. Mid-way through the arrangement, the style changes to an up-tempo Dixieland style with the melody cleverly traded between various sections of the band. This rousing number is sure to be a favorite.
