Play section lead and solos in eight new arrangements recorded by Peter Ecklund and the Messengers of Swing! Includes two swinging instrumentals made famous by Count Basie and Lester Young, and six original tunes. Written-out jazz solos with chord symbols supplied. Play the large notes for the easiest route through the arrangement; play the small notes for additional solos and leads. Improvise your own jazz solos using the provided accompaniment tracks. This collection of wonderful tunes in that classic Count Basie style are sure to thrill! The perfect gift for musicians interested in the great swing band tradition of the 30s and 40s. Includes a newly engraved, high-quality printed solo part, and a CD containing a complete version of each song as well as the accompaniments minus the soloist.
