“Avalon” is a 1920s jazz-era chart by Vincent Rose and Buddy DeSylva, written originally as an advertisement for the California resort town, and has found fame as a virtuosic showcase for big bands and many vocalists ever since. This big-band version by Mike Hammonds is a real powerhouse! Featuring a melody that’s tuneful and playable by all, the arrangement begins in a small group style, building to a kick section featuring the big, brash sound of the large ensemble that gives everybody a chance to blow! With reasonable tempo and ranges in all parts, “Avalon” is an excellent choice for your next festival or concert performance!
