Tree Frog composed by Bill Holman. Arranged by Bill Holman. For jazz ensemble (5-5-4-4). The Bill Holman Big Band Series. From the Count Basie CD "I Told You So". Shuffle. Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-329).
This chart was recorded by the Count Basie Orchestra on the CD "I Told You So." This is yet another terrific Holman chart written for that band! A medium-tempo shuffle that just swings and swings! There is solo space for a bucket-muted trombone, piano and an optional high trumpet part in the shout chorus. Tree Frog is a wonderful chart, written for and recorded by the great Basie Band. This is a winner. 5-5-4-4.
