Come Fly With Me - arr. Billy Byers Count Me In (Edited) - Billy Byers Count Me In (Pro) - Billy Byers
 The Count Basie Orchestra performed the music of Billy Byers for many, many years. His arrangement of "Come Fly With Me" is recorded on the Basie album Frankly Basie: Count Basie Plays the Hits of Frank Sinatra. Set in an up-tempo swing feel, Byers hits it hard from bar 1 and doesn't let up until the end of the chart.  Much like Neil Hefti's "Li'l Darlin'," this Billy Byers original exemplifies quiet, warm ensemble writing at its finest.  Much like Neil Hefti's "Li'l Darlin'," this Billy Byers original exemplifies quiet, warm ensemble writing at its finest.

  In usual Basie fashion, this chart swings its tail off with incredible ensemble passages, and provides for plenty of solo space for both tenor saxophonists to dual it out.  Many have tried, but few have been able to match the incredible swing that happens when you combine Billy Byers' arranging with the Count Basie Orchestra. Originally recorded on the Basie album Frankly Basie: Count Basie Plays the Hits of Frank Sinatra, "Hey, Jealous Lover" is a medium-swing chart that will excite your band and audiences alike!  Billy Byers' arrangement of "I'll Never Smile Again" will take you back to a time when dancing to a slow swing tune, played by a live big band in a ballroom filled with amazing sounds, was the absolute best part of any weekend. Originally recorded by the Count Basie Orchestra on their album Frankly Basie: Count Basie Plays the Hits of Frank Sinatra, Byers' arrangement uses the full ensemble to state the melody complete with a scattering of Basie fills, followed by a written out piano solo.
