Jazz Big Band - Medium Easy
By As recorded by Count Basie. Edited by Myles Collins. Swing. Full score and parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1303).

Item Number: JL.LL-1303

This arrangement of Jive at Five (written by Harry Edison & Count Basie) has been transcribed and adapted from Basie's 1939 recording. We have scored the chart for a full 5444 band line-up and have given it a definite ending, as opposed to the studio fade-out of the record. The original solos are written out: Tenor (Lester Young), Trumpet (Buck Clayton), Trombone (Dickie Wells), Baritone (Jack Washington), Piano (Basie). Aside from the solos (which require sound technique) this is an easy chart to play, and it has an infectious feel that both concert and dance crowds are sure to appreciate. There are no sax doubles. Duration: 2 mins 50 secs. wing @ 180 b.p.m.

Instrumentation: 2 Alto Saxophones, 2 Tenor Saxophones, Baritone Saxophone, 4 Trumpets, 4 Trombones, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums.
