Description:

This chart has been transcribed from Roulette SR-52081 "The Best Of Basie" (1962). We have expended the brass to 8 voices, to suit a standard 5444 big band line-up. The two Piano solos are written "as played" by Basie. The other solo spaces - Alto (originally Frank Wess), Tenor (Billy Mitchell), Trumpet and Trombone are improvised from the chords provided. Count Basie originally recorded a slightly different arrangement of this tune in 1945 (released on V-disc 419b) taken at a more relaxed tempo. Our chart plays down quite well anywhere between 190 and 220 b.p.m.
