Publisher: Lush Life Music

Style: Ballad @ 72 b.p.m.

"Li'l Darlin'" is one of the great tracks from the Basie band of the 1950s, and is one of a series written and arranged for the band by Neal Hefti to be found on "The Atomic Mr. Basie." This chart is a transcription taken from this album and includes the beautiful muted Trumpet solo which we have written on the 2nd Trumpet part. The chart contains subtle differences from the stock Hefti chart, and we have also written in the little solo licks from Guitar and Piano for authenticity. Whilst the notes are easy, this chart demands great timing discipline from your players, and good sectional blending is essential to achieve the right result. The 4th Trombone part is Bass and there are no sax doubles. This chart is a must have for any band.
