    Swanee (Machell) [211.01]

    20th Century. Jazz. Vaudeville. (1919). Swanee is a popular song written by George Gershwin in 1919, most often associated with the singer Al Jolson. Supposedly written in 10 minutes, it is partly a parody of Stephen Foster's Old Folks at Home. Once Jolson added it to his show Sinbad, the song took off and became a hit, the biggest of Gershwin's career. Dave Machell, a top UK arranger and composer has arranged this 4-minute brass quintet work for advanced performers. -the publisher
