If I Were a Bell, Arr. Sammy Nestico Stage Band Grade 4
Although composed by Frank Loesser for the musical Guys and Dolls, this tune became a jazz standard largely thanks to the recording by Miles Davis. Sammy Nestico shows that he's still the master of big band arranging with this sparkling version in a medium swing style. Impeccably scored utilizing every section of the band, solo space is provided for tenor sax and piano, and a beautifully crafted full band chorus finishes it out.
