Description:

Down For Double is another up-tempo swinger from the Basie Band of the early 1940's. The original arrangement was by Spud Murphy and we have taken his original concept and expanded the brass to 8 voices to suit a standard 5444 band line-up. The structure of the chart is essentially intro; chorus; bridge; piano solo; trombone solo; modulation; chorus featuring solo Tenor, then a final shout flourish which includes a Bass solo. Aside from the Piano solo which is written out "as played" by Basie, the other instrumental solos are to be improvised from the chords provided. There are no sax doubles.
