Earl Bostic: Flamingo
This is one our specially written charts for student/amateur swing bands. In addition to the usual 8 Brass and 5 Saxes we have included optional Flutes, Clarinets and Horn in F. Very safe Brass ranges are adopted throughout.
This great alto feature is based on the original hard driving Earl Bostic recording, with the fully written out solo part kept within a comfortable range suitable for a reasonably competent student/amateur player. There are plenty of ensemble fills and backings, as well as an 8 bar full band section.
