Post subject:  [Answered] Stop It! It's Wonderful, Tommy Dorsey

Hi,

I'm looking for a song which is approximately in the 130-160bpm range, which features a pause after almost ever (maybe every A) phrase.
This is the song with the most breaks I ever heard, maybe someone can help me out?

The melody of Harry James Strictly Instrumental kind of reminds me of the song, because it has a smiliar way of building up tension during a phrase, but obviously doesn't have the breaks I'm looking forward.

Regards,
Corni

I don't have any ideas right now, I'm afraid, but can you give us any more information?

Is it big band?
Does it sound like a recent recording?
Does it have any vocals?
Any instrumental solos that stand out? If so, what instrument?
Is it AABA form?

Hi,

I managed to do a transcription of the A part (without proper rhythm) here: http://www.scorio.com/scorio-portlet/sc ... 8b2a39464e
If this does not help you, I could try to get the rhythm right, but maybe the melody helps.

The last time I heard the recording was quite a time ago, but the piece was played by the Gramofonia Hot Jazz Orchestra at Lindy Shock, which leads me to believe it is a) swing-era and b) Bigband (although they play a lot of arrangements where only some instruments are playing, often giving the songs more a combo-like feeling than a bigband-feeling.
I don't think there are any vocals present.
It is either AABA or AAAB, I'm not entirely sure.

The melody rings a vague bell with me, but I can't place it at the moment. If it was played by the 'Gramofonia Hot Jazz Orchestra' I'm guessing the tempo was fast?

Although the Band is a "Hot Jazz orchestra", I was comfortably able to dance in triple-step feeling, leading me to guess the approximative bracket of 130-160bpm of the song.

So mid-tempo then, with a lot of breaks.

Stop Boogie Woogie by the KGB trio. I think they are from the southwest.

No, it's Stop it! It's Wonderful, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s2E7WiTF7c

A teaching friend of mine recognized me singing the song :mrgreen:

Thanks a lot for your help, though!
