Re: Song of India
I am an old part time Alto Sax player, and bought an Orchestration of this.
I did play it once or twice in a practise group.
Ended up playing in three piece bands mainly.
It is the original big band orchestration by Tommy Dorsey.
I got the Trumpet improvisation by listening.
I did this many many years ago on an opposition program which I have been using for more than 10 years. NWC.
Sorry about that.
I use Notation for lots of things nowdays.
Had to do each instrument seperately, and do the transpositions.
It hasnt got all, of all the instruments, but is as close as you can get to the original.
It is one of the really good big band songs as Tommys were.
The orchestration is written as moderate swing tempo, without the swing dotted quavers and semiquavers written.
The musos apparently had to know that.
The early days orchestrations were very small. Terrible to read.
Glad you enjoyed it.
