Beaver Junction is another classic swing chart from the Basie Band. Written by Harry Edison, this chart whilst still being a punchy swing tune, shows the way for others such as Cute, where unison muted Trumpets take the melody. There are a couple of fine Sax soli passages in this arrangement, a small cameo solo for Trumpet 2 & the Basie piano intro that became something of a hallmark. Not technically difficult, this chart requires precision & good section work to do it justice. Great for dancing or concert work. No sax doubles. Learn More£29.95
