Subj: [kl] Reed Parts for"Guys and Dolls"
Date: Fri, 4 May 2001 11:49:00 -0400

Our community band is providing the reed players for a local production of
"Guys and Dolls" next year. At the price they charge, we'll have the
scores only a few weeks before the production.

I am looking for advice from someone who has seen the "Guys and Dolls"
professional musical scores for the five reed players.

From memory when i saw the order form for a moment, it lists:
Reed 1 (flute, alto sax, clarinet)
Reed 2 (alto sax, clarinet)
Reed 3 (tenor sax, clarinet)
Reed 4 (tenor sax, clarinet)
Reed 5 (bari sax, bass clarinet)

To help us select players, i'd like to learn:

- how much of each horn is played (e.g.,, is Reed 1 mainly flute with a few
sax/clarinet passages, or about equal amounts of all 3 horns. ie, is the
first horn listed the most dominant)

- if you don't have the doubling horn, is any transposition included within
the parts with Eb or C doubles

- are the reed parts about the same level as "Oliver", which we did two
years ago.

- the part list implies jazz stage band experience might be best, is that true?

- is there a website where this info might be found? (i forgot to notice
which business provides the musical scores)
