Basie-Straight Ahead (Prof Edition) Composed by Sammy Nestico. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Kendor Music Inc. (Catalog # 2301, UPC: 822795023015)

As recorded by the Count Basie Orchestra, this bright swing classic opens with an improvised piano solo backed by rhythm section before the whole band jumps on board 28 bars later. Tenor sax and piano carry ad lib solos later on, and the final shout ends with piano playing the simple Basie signature we've all come to know and love. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Duration 6:30.
