Camel Hop by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Mary Lou Williams. For big band. Jazz, Swing. Medium Difficult. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8792).
It was John Hammond who suggested to Mary Lou Williams that she compose some music for Benny Goodman. In 1937 Benny Goodman had a radio show that was sponsored by Camel Cigarettes so Mary Lou wrote this arrangement of 'Camel Hop' for him to use as a theme song. The arrangement was recorded several times on the radio and in live performances in 1937. At present, most of the original parts are assumed lost - they are not to be found in the libraries of Mary Lou Williams or Benny Goodman. So, this arrangement has been reconstructed from the original parts we had along with a transcribed score.The arrangement was written for 4 reeds (2 altos/2 tenors), 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, and drums and features solo clarinet. This is not very difficult and only features the clarinet soloist in four short solos. Benny Goodman's solos have been written out, though we have also included chord changes. There are also solos for trumpet 2 and tenor 1.
