Bill Holman has created a rollicking, swinging, wonderful tribute to Woody Herman with this great chart. As recorded on "Bill Holman Band Live" (jazzedmedia.com), this chart features solos for tenor saxophone, trumpet and piano. Saxophones state the theme (reminiscent of Woody's theme Blue Flame), and there is a lot of call and response in the brass. The out chorus will lift your audiences out of their seats. 5-4-4-4.
