Description:

Rock-a-Bye Basie is a lovely little riff chart from the earlier days of the Basie band, written by Basie and Lester Young. We have written out the first (Alto) sax solo, though this can be improvised too. All of the other solos are to be improvised from the chords provided. The first of these solo spaces is for any of the sax team, the second is scored on Trumpet 2 and the last is for Piano. This is a cool little swinger, very straight ahead and with moderate brass ranges (lead Trumpet to Ab, lead bone to G) and no sax doubles.
