Swinging! That's what this chart is all about. It's classic Woody Herman at the First Year Jazz Ensemble level as only Mike Lewis can do for you. Flexible scoring for reduced instrumentation or with the full band-sounds great either way. This chart will help you focus on basic swing rhythms, easy off-beat figures and that trademark WOODCHOPPERS BALL kick on beat four. No individual solos and plenty of big- sounding ensemble will make this easy-to-learn arrangement a hit from day one. A modulation toward the end brings it home in style. Swinging!
