  • Lester Leaps In

    First recorded in September 1939, in the same session as Dickie's Dream, Lester Leaps In is a milestone chart which showcased the phenomenal talent of Lester Young. The arrangement evolved over time, easing in tempo, lengthening & gathering more band backing, until we arrive at this version. This chart simply swings from start to finish. We have transcribed all of the tenor solos, also the piano solos & bass line too, though chords are provided on the parts should your players wish to improvise. If you have a star tenor you wish to spotlight then Lester Leaps In is a perfect choice. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Tickle Toe

    Tickle Toe is a real Tenor sax feature. Hardly surprising, as it was written y Lester Young! This chart, with the usual Basie combination of flowing sax lines & punchy brass, is written in a minor key, giving it a haunting tonality. Quite quick, at 210 bpm, the chart itself is not technically too demanding, once your sax players have got their fingers around the tune. We have written out all of the solos (Tenor, Trumpet & Piano) & the chords too, should your players want to improvise. No sax doubles & the brass ranges are pretty moderate. Learn More
