Dan Augustine asked about the "front line only" chorus.
Add Barbone Street to the bands that do this, or variations of it.
Sometimes all 3 horns, sometimes only two horns. Very effective device
to add listener interest. Tiger Rag, Struttin With Some Barbecue, most
minor tunes etc. all adapt well to it.
We also pair a horn with the bass, or clarinet and drums, etc., to vary
the sounds, while the rest of the band rests. And sometimes, just a
"rhythm section" chorus with guitar, bass and drums concentrating on a
pulsing rhythm like Basie's.
