SWINGLE BELLS Arranged by Andy Firth
Based on the famous traditional Christmas song, “Jingle Bells”, this swinging chart combines the sound of a 1940s big band, a small Dixieland combo, and pays tribute to the hits of the Glenn Miller orchestra along the way. This swinging chart is full of fun for both your band and your audiences!
The arrangement has been a best seller for several publishers in the past and this latest version has been re-designed and optimized for high school/college level big bands. The brass ranges have also been adjusted to be playable without losing any of the excitement and sparkle of the original chart.
A “must-have” chart for any advanced-level big band!
