  • Every Tub

    Another flat-out swing chart from the earlier days of the Count Basie band.  Every Tub is a quick swing chart featuring Tenor sax, Trumpet & Piano, with loads of visual possibilities too, as much of the Brass ensemble work uses plungers/fan  hats. We have written out all of the original solos, though your players can improvise over the chords if they wish. The brass ranges are moderate & there are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Red Bank Boogie

    Red Bank Boogie is a classic Basie piano feature, & we have written out the Piano part in full. This chart evolved over time, as  many of CB's charts did. The original was possibly a little stilted, even a little corny perhaps, with the piano line being played in typical stride style. This later version was played by CB using fewer notes, with less emphasis on the lefthand, & we think it swings all the better for it. However, it is a quick chart & you will still need a pretty good pianist to do it justice. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
