Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

A wonderful chart from the pen of Neal Hefti for the Basie Band of the late 1950's, along with such well known charts as "Cute," "Flight of the Foo Birds," and many more. "Scoot" is almost all muted and fluted, originally with Frank Wess' flute paired with tightly plugged Trumpets (using a mix of mutes) to generate a relaxed but closely confined sound. The chart is quite quick and will need nimble fingers from your Trumpets, but once they get their fingers round it the chart will snap into place. The Flute solo is ad-lib, and the saxes are Flute, Alto, 2 Tenors & Bari. We have cued the Flute solo chords onto the Alto 2 part in case you don't have a Flautist. The chart is playable without the Flute lead, though it doesn't sound as good without it!. Swing @ 230 b.p.m.
