Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Another D-flat blues, but this one's more laid back (as the title might imply). Over the years, Frank Foster re-worked this arrangement (originally from the album Easin' It - Music from the Pen of Frank Foster) to include additional ensemble choruses not heard on the original recording as well as shift around which sections are playing the melody. This is not the arrangement that was featured on various Basie recordings, but a more involved, re-imagination done by Foster himself.

Solos for tenor, trombone, and trumpet. Not a difficult chart. For many years facsimile copies of Frank Foster's score and parts were reproduced and published by Walrus Music Publishing. This edition has been carefully prepared and engraved from these parts. Several note errors that were found in the original set of parts have been corrected as well. Articulations and dynamics that reflect the Count Basie Band interpretation have been included so that this arrangement may be faithfully reproduced.
