The Birth Of The Blues by Sammy Davis, Jr.. Arranged by George Rhodes. For big band with orchestra. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9052).
Here is one of Sammy Davis, Jr.'s most famous arrangements. We have used the original George Rhodes manuscript to produce this arrangement - this is not a transcription. Sammy recorded this tune several times - with both small groups and with big band. And, this chart uses his big band recording as the starting point with the addition of an orchestra. The orchestral parts are optional - the arrangement plays fine without them. This complete arrangement is scored for full big band plus 3 flutes (in unision), 3 oboes (in unision), 3 clarinets (in unision), 3 basoon (in unision), 4 horns (not in unison), tuba, 3 violins (not in unison), viola, cello, harp, and tuned percussion. If you have all the players at your disposal, this chart sounds fantastic behind a strong vocalist. Other than coordinating all of the orchestra players needed - if you choose to use them - this is not a technically difficult arrangement. However, trombones 1 & 2 go to C5. There are no doubles. Trombone 3 is written for bass trombone.
