Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Sierra Music

Once again Billy Byers has created the quintessential, original chart for the Count Basie Orchestra. This one is recorded on “Basie Land.” The easy swing feel/tempo makes this piece very accessible for most bands. There is a bit of flute in two saxophone parts. There are solos for tenor and trumpet and piano. Of course there is the required, masterful “shout chorus” that leads to a quiet, cool ending. Moderate ranges for all makes this a very accessible chart for most bands. 5-4-4-4
