Description:

Here is our take on the Foster classic, taken from Basie's 1981 Carnegie Hall concert, with Sonny Cohn on Trumpet. We have written out the first half of Cohn's solo and left your player to improvise the latter half. The Piano solo space is also ad-lib from the chords provided. Good intonation is needed in the brass, particularly for the muted melody in the first chorus, along with strict adherence to the written dynamics in order to achieve the correct Basie feel. We have also included the little drum licks and fills to enable an authentic performance. Not an easy chart, though very rewarding to play. For those who knew him, we've done this chart in memory of Jim.
