Save the Last Dance for Me:

 

I was drawn to this well-known 50’s cha cha because it has 10-measure phrases (two groups of 5); makes it a minor challenge for the soloists. Wycliffe Gordon is playing the trombone solo on the mp3, Fabio Mann the trumpet. Lead trumpet range goes up to an F.

 

Scored for five trumpets, four trombones, 5 saxes, and rhythm section.

 

I have permission to release the music on my CDs, but if you want to actually perform it you will have to get performance permission from the Harry Fox Agency (an inexpensive formality involving filling out a form).

 

mp3 performance by Augusta Jazz Project “Master of Swing” bigband under the direction of Dr. Rudy Volkmann.  CD available on both “Rudy Volkmann Arrangements ” and “Sold Out.”

 

$52 plus shipping and handling for printed score and set of parts; or $40 for pdf’s.
