Here is a transcription of King Oliver's Jazz Band ca.1923. The tune is called Sobbin' Blues.
The instrumentation is as follows:
- 1st Trumpet
- 2nd Trumpet
- Banjo/Guitar (one part)
This chart features wonderful ensemble parts which are completely written out except the clarinet part which is mostly just a chord sketch except the solo which is completely written out! Also featured are some fantastic solo breaks for the trumpets (all written out).
This chart’s level of difficulty is rated: Easy. This rating means the tempo, key, and instrumental range is manageable for most musicians. It is great for beginners to trad jazz.
