The Hangman's Swing

David Larsen

Grade 2

The Hangman's Swing is a fun and freaky piece with lots of room for humor and excitement. The chart is in the key of G minor and has modest ranges for all instruments. It features the Trombones, Tenors, and Baritone Sax on the melody and has easy straight forward rhythms. The band will be challenged with big shout sections, tutti melodies and a haunting break down based on Chopin?s Funeral March and J.S. Bach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. With improvised solos (included suggested written solos) for Guitar, Alto, or Tenor Sax this piece will surly get your group swinging all the way to the Gallows!
'The Hangman's Swing' is scored for small jazz ensembles and includes optional parts for Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, and Horn in F. The piano and bass parts are notated and all ranges are modest.
