Rating Review
Customer Rating Great arrangements and backing, really enjoyable to play along with, reminds me of the days with the Strathclyde Uni big band.
One fault I did find with the tracks was that, according to the score there is e.g. a four bar count in, but as far as I can hear, it launches straight into the tune and you just have to be ready to catch up

Customer Rating After some initial confusion I settled in to this and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Learning alto, tenor and trumpet, this book is a very welcome training aid having all three parts available. More of the Basie stuff please!
