Description:Transcribed from Basie's 1941 recording (Okeh Records 6365) Diggin' For Dex is a fine up-tempo swinger featuring solo space for Tenor, Trombone, Piano and Drums. The Piano solos are written out and we have included the backing lines behind the Trombone and Tenor solos, for added authenticity. All other solos are improvised from the chords provided. The brass has been augmented to 8 voices, to suit a standard 5444 big band line-up. This is a rare Basie chart and would make a fine addition to any library.
