Description:

This chart has been transcribed from the 1944 Lang-Worth radio aircheck that the Basie Band did, though the band also recorded an early 1940's version too. We have adapted the chart to a full 5444 line-up. The melody and original arrangement is by Buck Clayton, though we think that the Trumpet solo in this version was taken by Harry Edison. The Tenor solo is by Lester Young. Both solos are written out in full "as played", though the Basie Piano solo is left for your player to improvise.This chart is a fast & furious swinger which needs some good sectional discipline if it is to be performed well. There are no sax doubles.
