Conductor Score & Parts
4 (Medium Advanced / Difficult)
Wow! This is a show-stopping chart by arranger Alan Baylock of the Ellington/Tizol classic. The groove moves logically between an up-tempo swing, a "Maiden Voyage" feel, a double time swing and a 12/8 Afro-Cuban feel. Features include plenty of solo space for tenor saxophone, brief written melody lines for various instruments, and lots of moving lines and sax solis. Lead trumpet range is to written D above the staff. Caravan is nothing short of spectacular. This title is available through SmartMusic.
Duke Ellington (composer); Irving Mills (lyricist); Juan Tizol (composer)
