SWINGIN? ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Featured number on the Sammy Nestico CD THIS IS THE MOMENT. Dynamics and ?feel? are of utmost importance in the playing of this arrangement. The first two bars can be omitted. A little less volume at bar 7, and then into the trumpet/alto statement of the theme. The new theme at bar 54 is to be played full, but at an mf dynamic marking. At this point make certain that the trumpets are playing less volume than the saxes and trombones. They are not ?carrying the ball.? Of course the ensemble at bar 116 is full and ?tight.? Bar 74 calls for crisp quarter notes from the band, and leads to a delicate last four bars.
