Description:

Here is a transcription of the original (and best) Cute, as written by Neal Hefti for the Basie Band. It is not the 'standard' Hefti stock chart. The only change we have made is to score the chart for a full 8 piece brass section. The brass plays in bucket mutes throughout. We have assigned the Flute solo to Alto 2 (as played by Frank Wess) though have provided an extra Tenor 1 part which has the Flute double, allowing your band some flexibility in case your Alto player doesn't play Flute. The 32 measure drum solo is to be improvised by your player, and we have written in Basie's little piano licks that add so much to the brass lines. This chart is a must-have for all Basie lovers.
