Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This chart has been transcribed from the 1944 Lang-Worth radio aircheck that the Basie Band did, though the band also recorded an early 1940s version too. The arrangement has been modified to a full 5/4/4/4 line-up. The melody and original arrangement is by Buck Clayton, though we think that the trumpet solo in this version was taken by Harry "Sweets" Edison. The tenor solo is by Lester Young. Both solos are written out in full as-played, though the Basie piano solo is left for your player to improvise.This chart is a fast & furious swinger which needs some good sectional discipline if it is to be performed well. There are no sax doubles.
