Moten Swing

Series: Easy Jazz Ensemble Series Publisher: Hal Leonard Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composers: Buster Moten, Bennie Moten Arranger: Rick Stitzel

Level: 2

Recorded in 1932 by Bennie Moten's own Kansas City Orchestra, this jazz classic was notably stylized by Count Basie in 1940. Rick Stitzel's easy version is true to the Basie style, featuring tutti ensemble scoring along with a short solo for any sax followed by a solo for any trumpet. A great lesson in swing style for young players.

The Hal Leonard Easy Jazz Ensemble series is written for full band, playable with four saxes, three trumpets, three trombones, and rhythm section. Each arrangement includes optional parts for flute, clarinet, F horn and tuba. Full length recordings available for each arrangement.
