  • Jumpin' at the Woodside

    This Count Basie version is fast, furious and it's fun. We have written the original solo's "as played", though your players could improvise from the chords.  This chart is a great opportunity for your players to showcase their talents Learn More
  • One O' Clock Jump

    Here is our version of Basie's timeless classic which opens and closes in the style of the basie original, with loads of solo space in between.  All of the recognisable elements are there, including the count's opening solo, that great sax riff following the central piano solo and the final big shout choruses.

  • Pound Cake

    Another very rare chart from the Count Basie book. Pound Cake is Basie doing what he did best - pumping out swinging blues-based riff charts. This chart also features a rarity - a longish solo spot for Baritone Sax, & there are other solos for Alto 1 (cued on 2), Tenor 1 (cued on 2), Trumpet 2 & Piano. All of the solos are written out, the brass ranges are very moderate & there is loads of brass fan hot (or plunger) work, so the visual appeal is high too. Great fun! Learn More
  • The Kid From Red Bank

    The Kid From Red Bank, a reference to Mr Basie himself, is one of the great tracks from the Basie band of the 1950's, and one of a series written and arranged for the band by Neal Hefti to be found on The Atomic Mr. Basie album. This is the original arrangement and not a transcription, and includes the Piano solo fully written out. There is not a full score with this arrangement, though a Conductor lead sheet is included. A great tune, and classic. To listen use the link below http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEUBwiezayE Learn More
