Product Details


Big band jazz translates very well for strings and this cool arrangement stays true to the style of the original. Most sections share the melody, with the others playing the famous call-and-response accompaniment, and all but the cellos remain in first position. Two solos are written out for each instrument, with chord changes and back-up parts provided to allow students to create their own solos, encouraging improvisation. Your students will enjoy performing this authentic and accessible arrangement of Ellington's classic tune, and it would make an upbeat and distinctive addition to any concert program.
