  • Dickie's Dream

    Dickie's Dream named after Basie's outstanding Trombonist Dicky Wells, was first recorded in 1939 as a 7-piece featuring Wells, Buck Clayton & Lester Young, backed by the All American Rhythm section. The tune evolved over time until Basie recorded the version that we offer here. This chart features Trumpet, Trombone, Tenor & Piano, interspersed with backing phrases from the rest of the band. All four of the solos are written out as played by the Basie band, though we have included the chords should your players wish to improvise. No sax doubles. Learn More
