Description: Grade 2. There is no better style for young players to emulate than that of the Count Basie Orchestra. This famous swing tune is nicely arranged here by Mark Taylor in a very playable version that still sounds authentic. Includes access to online audio of a full performance recording. Enjoy great flexibility with the Easy Jazz Ensemble series! Playable with 4 saxes, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and rhythm.
Description: Here's a great way to introduce the music of Count Basie to your younger players. Carefully scored for beginning groups, this medium swing chart trades the melody between the trumpets and saxes, includes a solo or soli for trumpet, and a brief shout chorus using tutti rhythms for the entire band.
