Brass Quintet

St. Louis Blues
by W.C. Handy
arr. Zack Smith
Price: $10

Transposed parts can be ordered.


This is one of the best known W.C. Handy melodies (also covered by the Glenn Miller Big Band and Louis Armstrong among others).  The arrangement leans more towards Armstrong's version than Miller's, but it makes some references to both.  Trumpet gets to play some jazz (but there is a written solo as well); trombone and tuba also blow a little.  The arrangement alternates between a Latin feel and swing.  Should be a fun addition to your swing library.

Listen to a synthesized rendition.       or listen with your own player
