  • Duet

    Duet is one of the great tracks done for the Basie band by Neil Hefti, from The Atomic Mr Basie album. This is a wonderfully laid back chart featuring two of your trumpet players.Hence the title of the piece. This is a transcription of the original Hefti arrangment, & includes fully transcribed Joe Newman & Thad Jones' solos, scored on Trumper 2 & Trumpet 4, plus the Piano solo & fill-ins. There are no sax doubles. Listen using the link below http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpziGDB8V-4 Learn More
  • Good Earth, The

    Written by Neal Hefti for the Woody Herman Orchestra, this is a blistering swing chart. This transcription is taken from the 1963 Basin Street West studio session in Hollywood and adapted for the usual 4 trumpets and 4 trombones. The reeds stay "as recorded", though we have included an extra Alto part which can be substituted for the 2nd Tenor part, making the section CTATB. Herman's solo is written out, but the Tenor solo is improvised. This is quite a challenging chart to play and it needs energy and good musicianship to do it justice. However, it is really rewarding for band and audiences alike. Learn More
  • Teddy the Toad

    Another rare chart from the Hefti days of the Basie band. This is not the Hefti stock chart that was issued many years ago. It is the complete Basie version & a nice Trombone sectional feature. We have written the chart for 2 Tenors & 1 Bass Trombone, with an optional 4th (Tenor) Trombone part. The Piano part has all of the little fills & licks written in, as does the drum part & the Trombone parts are written as they were played. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
