    as performed by Johnny Hodges
    Instrumentation: Ellington 7-pc
    Level: 2
    Notes: In Swingin' on the Campus you are either playing a killin' riff for the head or you are soloing! This is a very simply constructed piece that only is a level 2 because of the relatively uptempo speed. Solo changes are variations on rhythm changes.

  • Length: 2:39
    = 124
    as performed by the Beantown Swing Orchestra
    Instrumentation: Big Band
    Level: 4
    Notes: An original song off the 2011 Beantown Swing Orchestra album "A Beantown Christmas," Christmas Land is a light-hearted, swinging tune about the magical world of fun and happiness where all things Christmas are created. There are several solo spaces for trumpet and some great swinging ensemble parts reminiscent of Nelson Riddle's work for Frank Sinatra. This is slightly easy for a level 4. The vocal range is Gb3 to Db5 (optional).

    as performed by Johnny Hodges

  • Goin' Out the Back Way
    Length: 2:41
    = 155
    as performed by Johnny Hodges
    Instrumentation: Ellington 7-pc
    Level: 1
    Notes: A well-rounded starter chart (especially for younger bands), this tune features a nice melody with every instrument in the comfortable zones of their ranges, simple backgrounds, cool chord changes, and a medium tempo. A couple of instruments that don't get too many solos have their space here as well. Slightly tricky for a level 1, but nothing crazy!

    Lead Tpt F5
  • Length: 2:42
    = 205
    as performed by the Artie Shaw Orchestra
    Instrumentation: Big Band
    Level: 3
    Notes: Diga Diga Doo was a heavily covered tune in the 1920s and '30s, but Artie Shaw's version was one of the tightest. A hard swinging and nimble riff vehicle that has some room for solos as well, Diga is a great upbeat piece that isn't too tricky and has lots of fun moments! CAATT.
