Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Written by Milton Ebbins and arranged by Jimmy Mundy, "Coming Out Party" was first released by Count Basie's band in 1942 on Okeh 6564. as the b-side to "Harvard Blues." Here is the original chart transcribed for you and it's been adapted it to a full 5,4,4,4 big band line-up. The chart is based around a simplistic riff which runs for half a chorus in the Trombones, before unison saxes take the middle eight backed by brass figures, before the Trombones return. There then follows a 16 measure bridge that layers the reeds over the Trombones, after which the whole band enters for a mid-chart shout, offset by a sparse Basie solo. A further band shout leads to the restatement of the theme to the close. There are no sax doubles.
