Possibly the coolest, most relaxed piece of music by the coolest and most relaxed big band ever! One of the greatest arrangements that Hefti wrote for the legendary Count Basie Big Band in the early 1950s, here's a real jazz ballad that swings gently! This chart features dense harmonies on a deceptively simple melody, providing a great introduction to jazz harmony for the orchestra. Suggested solos over changes are written out for solo players or sections. Chords are provided over a walking bass line, making it possible to add instruments to the optional rhythm section. A drumset part is included

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Received the guitar yesterday afternoon, only 1 day after it shipped UPS ground. It's everything as described and more. Pestered you a couple of times with questions about my order and you were gracious, down to earth, and quick to respond. We can't wait to see our Granddaughter's face when she opens this gift. Would highly recommend your site to anyone."
