Description:

Tickle Toe is a real Tenor sax feature, which is hardly surprising, as it was written by Lester Young. This chart, with the usual Basie combination of flowing sax lines and punchy brass, is written in a minor key, giving it a haunting tonality. Quite quick, at 210 bpm, the chart itself is not technically too demanding, once your sax players have got their fingers around the tune. We have written out all of the solos (Tenor, Trumpet and Piano) and the chords too, should your players want to improvise. Another very rare chart, Tickle Toe is part of our expanding series of Basie charts that we think deserve wider appreciation. No sax doubles and the brass ranges are pretty moderate.
