The Vegas Shuffle

Grade 4      Swing      Composer:Paul Baker      Price:$55     

full version  

This is a great contest/festival chart! A high energy shuffle swing tune that shows off every section of the ensemble, this programmatic tour de force depicts scenes from an imaginary trip to Las Vegas, from the bright lights of the Strip and brassy casino showrooms to the wiseguy on the street and other temptations. Solos for trombone and muted trumpet are featured along with a bluesy sax soli and some drum business along the way. Trumpet range is to written high D, trombone to Ab.
