Possibly the coolest, most relaxed piece of music by the coolest and most relaxed big band ever! One of the greatest arrangements that Hefti wrote for the legendary Count Basie Big Band in the early 1950s, here's a real jazz ballad that swings gently! This chart features dense harmonies on a deceptively simple melody, providing a great introduction to jazz harmony for the orchestra. Suggested solos over changes are written out for solo players or sections. Chords are provided over a walking bass line, making it possible to add instruments to the optional rhythm section. A drumset part is included.
