Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This bright swing arrangement was written by Thad Jones for Count Basie's 1959 album titled 'Dance Along with Basie.' The album featured arrangements by Thad and Frank Foster. The chart opens with the trombones stating the melody for the first A section. This is followed by a tenor saxophone solo for the second A with swinging brass backgrounds. There is a great saxophone soli that leads to a shout chorus and ending. Thad has done a great job of reinventing this tune with great harmonies and swinging melodic lines.

Special thanks to John La Barbera, Dr. David Demsey, John Mosca, and the Thad Jones Archive at William Paterson University for their assistance in perparing this publication.
