Dee Day composed by Dee Barton. Arranged by Dee Barton. For jazz ensemble (5-4-4-4). Jazz Masters Series. Swing. Grade 3-4. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-227).
Dee Barton's reputation as a composer for the Kenton band is superb. What isn't known, is how successful he was at creating very hip, but very playable charts in other styles. This is a Benny Golson-type of tune, with very sensible brass ranges and very accessible music for all. Solos for alto saxophone and trumpet. You'll really enjoy programming this chart. 5-4-4-4.
