This is #4 in our series of Dixieland Band arrangements and it was also requested. This is based on Bob Wilber and his band’s performance at the Ascona Jazz Festival in 1987. To it I added a trombone part, an introduction and have copied most of the clarinet solo from his original video. This is a very fine number for a special affect for the rhythm parts are very different from most Dixieland charts. This will be one of your bands favorite numbers and the trumpet player will enjoy it for it gives him/her time to rest the chops.
