Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Easy Does It" is another classic but underplayed chart from the Tommy Dorsey book, written by Sy Oliver. This chart is a medium tempo bouncy swing chart with a 2-beat feel that dancers might describe as a Shag tempo. As the title suggests, it glides effortlessly along if taken at the right tempo. The chart features your lead Trombone and Tenor 1. We have cross-cued the Trombone lead onto the 3rd Trumpet part, should the range prove too high for your player, and we have transcribed fully the original Tenor solo, though he can improvise from the chords if desired. Both Altos double Clarinets.

Swing @ 150 b.p.m.
