Description:Basie Boogie is, as its name might suggest, an up-tempo Piano feature that swings from top to toe. Like many of Basie's charts, the arrangement evolved over time, but this version is from the original recording. We have written out the Piano part in full to include the licks and fills and the boogie-woogie left hand patterns, though your player can improvise from the chords if needs be. The band parts are not demanding, and fairly sparse, leaving the Pianist all the space needed to do his thing. A rare chart and a real gem. There are no sax doubles.
