Blue and Sentimental
Count Basie is also known as a composer. This slow swing composed by the legendary Count and arranged by Roy Phillippe will make your young band sound like old pros. Written solos bounce around the band for alto sax, trumpet, trombone, tenor sax, and piano to spread out the opportunity to solo. Simple rhythms, easy ranges, and a nice melody provide the ideal setting for the young player to play jazz. The Count would dig this chart.
