Description:This is the children's nursery rhyme "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" that has been given the Count Basie / Jimmy Rushing treatment. The chart features your male singer, your Tenor soloist, your Pianist, and let's not forget all of your instrumentalists singing a couple of choruses of unison vocals. The chart opens with a band chorus in Eb, modulates to Ab for the band & solo vocal passages, lifts to Db for the Trombone soli and Tenor solos, kicks to F for the Piano solo and finally reverts to Ab for the final vocal shout. The solos are written out "as-played", though your players can do their own thing from the chords provided. This chart is 3 minutes of fun, and there are no sax doubles.
