Mention the words Route 66 and many people think Johnny B-Goode, Rock and Roll, guitar bands etc. Well, think again. This version is written as a bouncy, but not fast, swing-shuffle that has a laid-back yet driving feel to it. Solo space is included for Tenor, Trumpet and Baritone, all backed by brass riffs that build as the solos progress. Fun and straightforward to play and good to dance to. The vocal range is Bb below middle C to D one octave above middle C. Vocal key is Eb to F.
