After The Rain
Retail Price: $56.00

The first chorus should be a two-beat feel before transitioning into a solid, straight-ahead 4-beat feel at the trombone chorus. Make sure the time has a sense of forward momentum throughout. The voicing at measure 69 sounds best if everyone takes some deep breaths and blows! Trombone figures must be short and crisp at measure 85, while saxes and trumpets are phrasing their lines. At measure 104 things should be nice and easy until the build-up at 108 for the ending.  standard jazz ensemble; trumpets double on flugelhorn

Again and Again
Retail Price: $50.00

Even when Benny Carter wasn't writing for Count Basie, many of his charts from the 1950's onward sound like they could have been written for Basie. Maybe this is because so many of Basie's arrangers (Sammy Nestico, Quincy Jones, Billy Byers and Neal Hefti) were influenced by Carter. The writing is straightforward, with simple harmonies, swinging rhythms and very clear counterpoint. Again And Again has much of the style of an alto feature that Quincy Jones might have written for Marshall Royal. Although Carter gives the pianist two little solo spots, the focus is on the lead alto. The backgrounds are spare and dry, so it is incumbent upon the soloist to supply the warmth and personality to tell this gentle story. Vibrato, scoops, bends, turns, and other devices can be used to bring this simple line to life.
