"Minnie the Moocher's Wedding"

as performed by the Benny Goodman Orchestra
Instrumentation: Big Band
Level: 4
Notes: This wild piece starts out with a quoting of Mendelssohn's "Wedding March," but after two bars it's off to the races with tons of intricate riffs, solos, and a rowdy shout chorus at the end. Watch out for the lightening quick mute changing, which was standard practice in the 1930s. This piece makes a great wedding reception opener and many working bands using it now will open up the first solo section as a vamp to introduce a wedding party. CAATT.
