For The Li'l Ones composed by Bob Curnow. Arranged by Bob Curnow. For jazz ensemble (5-4-4-4). The Bob Curnow Big Band Series. Swing. Grade 3-4. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-756).
Here is a wonderful "Basie-ish" chart with a catchy melody set in an easy-swing tempo. Curnow has created a laid-back, swinging chart very much in the style of Sammy Nestico and others who wrote for the amazing Basie Band. Solo space for alto saxophone, swinging ensembles, moderate ranges and a cute ending make this a terrific piece to program for players of all levels. 5-4-4-4.
