Description:

Goin' To Chicago Blues - Peggy Lee. Written by Count Basie and his vocalist, Jimmy Rushing, this tune was a staple of the early Basie band. The chart that we offer here is a later vocal version written for Peggy Lee by Quincy Jones. It still retains a certain Basie flavour, as one might expect from a QJ chart. The band backings complement the vocal lines and the instrumental bridge has a great double-time feel at its heart. The brass ranges are quite high. You will need a lead Trumpet who can repeatedly hit a written high F (four times in the chart) and the lead Trombone reaches high C too. IF your players have the chops this chart is for them. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is C throughout.
