Big band - Medium
By Count Basie. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Neal Hefti. Swing; Jazz. Score only. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1388S).

Item Number: JL.LL-1388S

Elegantly transcribed by Jon Harpin from Basie's 1962 Verve album "On My Way and Shoutin' Again", this Neal Hefti chart has a real gospel feel to it, and swings like crazy from start to finish. The opening chorus is from the reeds, with tenor 1 taking the lead line. The band closes out the melodic statement and trumpet 2 picks up the solo work, backed by unison reeds. Being a Basie chart, it wouldn't be complete without a big shout chorus and this chart has two of them before things calm down by a re-statement of the intro and sax soli, all finished off with some excellent dynamic contrast from the band, a quick sax lick and final chords. There are no sax doubles.

Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, Ab5, Ab5; Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, G4, Eb4.
