Here is a transcription of Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers ca. 1929. The tune is Mint Julep.
The instrumentation is as follows;
- 1st Trumpet
- 2nd Trumpet
- Banjo/Guitar (one part)
- Bass/Tuba (one part)
This chart features wonderful ensemble parts which are completely written out except the clarinet part which is just a chord sketch except the solo. I removed the piano solo and added a clarinet and trombone solo in its place.
This chart’s level of difficulty is rated: Hard. This rating means you will likely need to spend some time in the woodshed working this up! Likely the tempo, feel, key, range, and interpretation will be challenging. Don’t let this stop you – you can play this chart no matter what your groups skill level is – you just need to work at it.
