Looking for an up-tempo swinger? Louis Armstrong and Lil Nobles Armstrong wrote this Dixieland gem in 1928, and arranger Alan Baylock keeps it fresh. New to the Warner Bros. Publications family, Alan Baylock is an outstanding jazz arranger with loads of credentials and experience. Brilliantly written for the more experienced band, this chart begins with Louie's original solo motif as the the intro. Then Alan goes on to use many creative ideas such as contemporary harmonies, an authentic struttin' march, trombones in plunger mutes, and a powerhouse shout chorus. Alto, trumpet, and drum solos along with interesting ensemble lines keep your band thinking. A super chart for festivals or concerts!
