Description

"Although I originally conceived of this chart for publication for high school bands, it has served as my own band's opener for over a decade now.  The first name band I ever saw live was the Count Basie New Testament Band.  I tried to capture that spirit here.  Hopefully you can hear the influences of Benny Carter and Neal Hefti.  Don't let the simple riff orientation fool you--there is a lot of musical subtlety to be had in this chart."  - David Berger
