 As recorded by the Stan Kenton Orchestra on Adventures In Standards, this is a medium-swing chart on a great tune. This Count Basie standard gets a fresh new sound in the hands of master arranger Calvin Custer. Neil Hefti was famous for his swingin' charts, and this is a great realization of the Basie style. You need this chart if you want to get your students really cookin' this year. It's also a great choice for festival! (duration 4:43) As performed by Gordon Goodwin’s Little Phat Band, the instrumentation is tenor sax, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass (acoustic), and drums. This one is a funky shuffle and the tempo is around 170 BPM with some very clever counterpoint. All parts have solo space.

A medium groove swing tune that fits like an old shoe---so comfortable and everything works just right. Composed and arranged by the legendary Sammy Nestico for the late Harry "Sweets" Edison, this chart screams Count Basie. And speaking of swinging, there is a glorious ensemble section that brings it all together so sweetly! Sammy includes solo space for trumpet, piano, second alto sax, tenor sax, and trombone. This chart is not technically difficult, but dynamics and cohesive ensemble playing are a must. A wonderful chart that belongs in every jazz library! Written for the Gerry Mulligan Concert Jazz Band Featuring a contemporary sounding groove utilizing even 8th notes, this familiar standard is given a unique treatment in the skilled hands of Mike Tomaro. A trio of tenor sax, trombone and guitar take the lead before yielding to the entire ensemble. The overall style is laid back but with an underlying rhythmic pulse and energy, with plenty of variety in scoring and dynamics.
