Description:This version of Alright, Okay was done by Joe Williams with the Count Basie Orchestra and it is a very danceable bouncy shuffle that has a solid pulse. There is nothing complicated about the chart and it is a fine example of how to score an arrangement to feature your vocalist. There is also a great 8 bar bridge between the vocal choruses which gives a real kick to the middle of the arrangement. The Trombones are written for 3 Tenors and a Bass, though the Bass bone is in Tenor range. The vocal key is Ab and we have scored the vocal chart to reflect Joe Williams' performance. No sax doubles.
