Hour Of Parting by Glenn Miller. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Bill Finegan. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1308).
Whilst never commercially recorded by the Miller band because the chart's playing time was too long to fit onto a 78rpm record, The Hour of Parting was an often played number in the Miller book. The original exquitite arrangement was by Bill Finegan and featured Tex Beneke's tenor. It has been recreated here for you, though the brass has been expanded to eight voices from the original six, whilst retaining the feel of the original. The as-played solos for tenor, trombone and trumpet are written out in full and the reeds are scored for CATTB/A. Miller's original section was CAATT, though a later version was CATT and baritone doubling alto. The baritone was introduced to add depth to the unison sax melody line before the bridge, though your player can stay on alto throughout if preferred. This is a hauntingly beatuiful chart which deserves a place in the band library of any lover of Miller. Style: Swing @ 100 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, A5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, Db4, Bb3.
