Description:

Beaver Junction is another classic swing chart from the Basie Band, and part of our continuing Basie re-creation project. Written by Harry Edison, this chart, whilst still being a punchy swing tune, shows the way for others such as Cute, where unison muted Trumpets take the melody. There are a couple of fine Sax soli passages in this arrangement, a small cameo solo for Trumpet 2, and the Basie piano intro that became something of a hallmark. Not technically difficult, this chart requires precision and good section work to do it justice. Great for dancing or concert work. No sax doubles.
