Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Benny Carter wrote this piece and recorded it with his band in 1933, and it became one of the defining swing charts of the era. He later scored this arrangement for the Gene Krupa Orchestra, and it is arguably even better than the original. The only changes from this classic was to score the chart for 8 brass and 5 saxes (originally 6 & 4 respectively). There are solo spots for tenors 1 & 2, trumpet 2, trombone 1 and drums, and all of the solos are written out in full, except the drum solo where the the first 4 (of 16) measures have been written out in Krupa style. This chart skips in a relaxed right-on-the-beat swing style, and is great for the dancers. There are no sax doubles.
