    Porgy & Bess Selections (Gale) [211.01]

    20th Century. Jazz. Musical Theater. As recorded by the Empire Brass Quintet. A medley of Catfish Row; Summertime; A Women is a Sometime Thing; My Man's Gone Now; I Got Plenty of Nuttin; Bess You Is My Women; It Ain't Necessarily So; There's a Boat That's Leaving Soon; Oh Lawd I'm On My Way. Most of the titles can be performed as distinct movements or as a medley. When performed as a medley, the joining of each movement together is done in a skilled, non-offensive way (basically there are no cheesytransitions!). Gale's a top rate arranger and this work is an arranger's tour de force. Includes an optional ending at end of It Ain't Neccessarily So to match the recorded performance of the Empire Brass. Second trumpet also plays flugelhorn. Trumpets require straight mutes. Trombone requires a plunger mute. Duration is approx 20:00 minutes. Score and parts. -cdp
