Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Down For Double" is another up-tempo swinger from the Basie Band of the early 1940s. The original arrangement was by Spud Murphy and the original concept has been expanded to 8 brass voices to suit a standard 5444 band line-up. The structure of the chart is essentially intro; chorus; bridge; piano solo; trombone solo; modulation; chorus featuring solo Tenor, then a final shout flourish which includes a Bass solo. Aside from the Piano solo which is written out as played by Basie, the other instrumental solos are to be improvised from the chords provided. There are no sax doubles.
