Written For Harry James

Arranged By Thad Jones, Prepared By Jeffrey Sultanof And Rob Duboff

Swing - Difficult

Harry James, one of the leading trumpeters of the Swing Era, was a huge fan of the sound and style of the 1950s Count Basie Orchestra. James hired several of Basie's arrangers to write arrangements for him in the early 1960s, including Neal Hefti, Ernie Wilkins, and Thad Jones. Many of Thad's contributions were recorded by James, including charts that made up the the entire 1964 record New Versions of Down Beat Favorites, two charts on Our Leader! and still more in the 1970s. However, several of these were never recorded or available-until now; they remained a part of Harry James's library and were discovered in his archives. Highlights include totally different versions of familiar Jones classics Three and One and Tip Toe. These charts beautifully illustrate how Thad had such a unique talent for writing within the established style of others' bands, while still managing to instill his own musicality in each piece. These have never been published previously, and along with enlarging the existing Jones canon, they will also give the world yet another window via which to view the mastery of this giant of arranging. This arrangement of the Thad Jones original composition About Time features the trombones stating the melody with saxophone and trumpet backgrounds. There is also solo sections for trombones 1 and 2. There is a great shout chorus that leads back to the trombones playing the melody. Special thanks to Dr. David Demsey, John Mosca, and the Thad Jones Archive at William Paterson University for their assistance in perparing this publication. Ranges: Trumpet 1: E6; All Trombones: Bb4
