Clarinet in Bb part from Charleston Medley Goes Solo!

Publisher
Duration
3 minutes
Genre
Jazz music

The original idea for this medley of The Charleston and Black Bottom resulted from a ’Twenties Evening’ organised in aid of Multiple Sclerosis by a retired local piano teacher and good friend, whose husband unfortunately suffers from the illness.

Initially there was a copyright issue with the medley, which was complicated by the fact that two US companies originally shared joint ownership of the former tune, and a different company the latter.

However, with the eventual assistance of Richard Paine, Rights/Media Music Director of Faber Music Ltd, who now look after the joint interests of the former US companies, I have been given full permission for the medley, in all the current instrumentations, and for any subsequent ones using the same musical ’template’.

This can be confirmed from the full copyright line on the title page of each arrangement, a condensed version of which also appears on every respective instrumental part.

In the present economic climate, sometimes people will buy the full set of parts, but not necessarily the full score as well - or occasionally vice versa. Where the parts alone have been purchased, reference should be made to the full copyright line, as it appears on the score, and which will always be available for inspection online.

While I have made this solo arrangement initially for Clarinet in Bb, I have included appropriately transposed parts for Alto/Tenor Sax, Bassoon and Flute, with suitable octave adjustments to take into account their respective ranges.

The list isn’t finite. If there’s an instrument you’d like, just let me know, and I can add the respective part!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
