    Notes: An original song off the 2011 Beantown Swing Orchestra album "A Beantown Christmas," Christmas Memories is designed to sound as if Glenn Miller had performed this in 1938, complete with the classic clarinet-led reed section. To add to this effect, the song lyrics are about holiday nostalgia, connecting the past with the present. Saxes are CAATT. Vocal range is F3 to C4.

    Lead Tpt Bb5
  • The Back Room Romp (A Contrapuntal Stomp)
    Length: 2:44
    = 154
    as performed by Rex Stewart and His 52nd Street Stompers
    Instrumentation: Ellington 7-pc
    Level: 3
    Notes: Back Room Romp is basically a simple blues in Ab, but there is a twist: the head is a series of building independent lines, thus a "Contrapuntal Stomp." Every horn player gets a chorus. The lead trumpet part is a bit of a blow, but this was written for longtime Ellington sideman, trumpeter Rex Stewart. Another level 3 factor: the alto often hits high written Eb.
    Solos: Alto, Trumpet, Bari, Bone
    Composer: Duke Ellington
    Arranger: Duke Ellington
    Year: 1937
    Arrangement Year: 1937
