Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Benny Carter originally composed and arranged this famous melody for the Count Basie band, who recorded it in 1961 (also available, please click here to view it). In 1982 Benny revised his earlier arrangement to be used for concerts and master classes he was giving. In 1987 this arrangement was recorded by the American Jazz Orchestra. The melody remains largely the same as the 1961 chart; however, he added additional ensemble choruses and gave the brass a larger role throughout. Benny considered this arrangement to be the definitive version of this song.
