Begin The Beguine Composed by Cole Porter. Arranged by Lennie Niehaus. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Sierra Music Publications. (SMP566)

As recorded by the Stan Kenton Orchestra on Adventures In Standards, this is a medium-swing chart on a great tune. Lennie uses a neat vamp in the trombones to offset the melody in the saxes. The full ensemble then kicks off a trombone solo. The full band plays a great "shout" chorus out to the end. There is an optional ending (the recorded as opposed to the original). Kenton and Niehaus at their best! 5-5-5-3 (can be played with 8 brass)
