Description:

920 Special is a song covered by many of the great Big Bands. Ours is the Basie version taken from the 1960's and forms part of our Basie series marking his Centenary in 2004. It features some great sectional work and interplay between Saxes and Trumpets throughout the chart. Taken at a slightly more relaxed tempo than his earlier recordings, this chart features solo space for Alto, Trumpet and Tenor, plus we have written out Count Basie's piano solos and fills for you, though your pianist can always improvise from the chords. A good dance number too, for the Shag and Lindyhopper set. No Sax doubles.
