Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Transcribed from Basie's 1941 recording (Okeh Records 6365) "Diggin' For Dex" is a fine up-tempo swinger featuring solo space for tenor, trombone, piano, and drums. The piano solos are written out and the backing lines behind the trombone and tenor solos have been included for added authenticity. All other solos are improvised from the chords provided. The brass has been augmented to 8 voices, to suit a standard 5444 big band line-up. This is a rare Basie chart and would make a fine addition to any library.
