The Birth Of The Blues by Louise Plowright. Arranged by Shaun Byrne. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9057).
Here is a great arrangement done by Shaun Byrne that is based on the recording done by Louise Plowright for the musical 'The Hot Shoe Shuffle.' After a brief 6-bar intro, the vocalist sings the first 8 bars of the verse colla voce with piano. The band is then cued in a tempo at 95 bpm. This features a lot of great ensemble writing including screaming trumpets (up to an optional F6 for tpts 1 and 2). 4 measures from the end there is a rallantando down to half time for the final 3 bars. This is just a superb chart to feature your female vocalist and proficient band. There are no sax doubles. The vocal key is Ab throughout.
