Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This chart has been transcribed from Roulette SR-52081 "The Best Of Basie" (1962). The brass has been expanded to 8 voices, to suit a standard 5444 big band line-up. The two piano solos are written as-played by Basie. The other solo spaces - alto (originally Frank Wess), tenor (Billy Mitchell), trumpet, and trombone are improvised from the chords provided. Count Basie originally recorded a slightly different arrangement of this tune in 1945 (released on V-disc 419b) taken at a more relaxed tempo. This chart plays down quite well anywhere between 190 and 220 b.p.m.
