Another very rare chart from the great Count Basie Orchestra, "Dickie's Dream," named after Basie's outstanding Trombonist Dicky Wells, was first recorded in 1939 as a 7-piece featuring Wells, Buck Clayton and Lester Young, backed by the All American Rhythm section. The tune evolved over time until Basie recorded the version that we offer here. The tempo is more relaxed and the harmonic structure has modified a little, though the form is still that of the original. This chart features Trumpet, Trombone, Tenor and Piano, interspersed with backing phrases from the rest of the band. All four of the solos are writen out as-played by the Basie band, though we have included the chords should your players wish to improvise. No sax doubles.

Swing @ 180 b.p.m.
