Alexander's Ragtime Band

Irving Berlin (composer), Jerry Nowak (arranger)
Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 in B,...


One of Irving Berlin's most popular songs is given the big band treatment by Jerry Nowak. It starts out with an up tempo swing, dense with harmony, and leads to a jazz ballad in the middle of the piece. This is then followed by a swing roll-off and a catchy Dixieland treatment of the tune by a brass quintet. It finishes up with the full band swingin’ at the end. Great for pops concerts and for community bands.
