That’s A Plenty
Introduce your band and audiences to a little “2-beat” and some jazz history with this easy to prepare arrangement of this great jazz standard. Originally a ragtime piano piece, “That’s-A-Plenty” is most commonly associated with Dixieland music. This arrangement now makes it available to jazz bands at the medium-easy level. There’s lots of fun for all the sections, including some “smeared” notes for the bones and some short solis for the saxes. The drummer gets some tom-tom work a la Gene Krupa, and while there are no improvised solos, one (or all) of the trumpets gets to do a written out “call and response” solo back and forth with the rest of the band. This one is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
