Description:

The Joe Williams / Count Basie partnership was a rich one indeed, and together they produced many fine recordings. Roll 'Em Pete, from the early 70's, is one of the best, with JW improvising around the original blues line with consumate ease. The band backings support the vocalist all the way, and there is also a 2 chorus solo spot for Tenor 1. We have written out the Trombone solo fill-ins behind the first two choruses, and the Tenor fills after the solo too. The vocal sheet is written out as sung by JW, and there are no sax doubles. Although the band had 5 Trumpets during the recording session, we have adapted the chart to 4.
