Dr. Bone Big Band Charts
(0)1273 516632/07710 771606
Dr Bone’s charts are written for full big band (most with score and some with optional 5th trumpet parts) and the majority are specifically written for Ballroom and Latin American dancing. They are very approachable in technique and range (with no improvised solos) and a very useful addition to your library.
