Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Corner Pocket was written by the unsung hero of the Count Basie band, Freddie Green, and its title is a reference to the place that Green called his own - the corner pocket of the rhythm section. This has been transcribed from the "Basie in London" album but the chart has been adapted slightly to make it suitable for 8 brass. There are ad-lib solo spots for trumpets 1 & 2 and tenor 1. Basie's piano solos are written out as-played, as is the last 8 measures of the lead trumpet solo because it suggests the theme for the final shout chorus at the end of the piece, though your player can improvise if desired. There are no sax doubles. A fabulous chart from the height of the Basie Band.
