….another request. Keep them coming for I’ll never get stuck in a rut!

The tempo is more in line with a true Cakewalk and has the old Southern dignity required to pull it off. Each of the horns has a solo (written out) and each member has a vamp section where he or she is introduced. This arrangement will work for any good Dixieland band and can be used as an opener or a feature number in the middle of a program. I even added a “One More Time” shout at the end and have indicated where to restart the last run through. Everything needed to bring down the house is in this arrangement. The trombone smears are also indicated.

Everything is indicated in each part with complete Piano, Guitar, Bass and drum parts included.

It’s time to bring back Dixieland!
