At the height of his career in the mid-1930s, Leroy Anderson began arranging for Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops Orchestra. Later, Fiedler encouraged him to write his own tunes for the Pops. His 50+ compositions virtually define the sound of the contemporary American pops orchestra. Blue Tango was a #1 hit in 1951, juxtaposing the charismatic melody over a traditional tango pulse. This new edition was originally arranged by the composer for concert band and has been freshly re-engraved with a full score for the first time, allowing a uniformity of articulation throughout the work.
