What you are looking at here is a complete album Lead Book transcription of Snooky Young’s playing on Count Basie’s “Not Now, I’ll Tell You When.” By having a full stack of lead charts at the ready, you are able to blare the original album and feel the band underneath you while you emulate Snooky Young’s sound. Learn to cut through the band and sizzle while you experience what it would have felt like to play lead in Count Basie’s big band.
With the exception of “Ol’ Man River,” all of the selections on this studio album are originals from Count Basie’s sidemen. This wonderfully obscure repertoire makes this a fine album for veteran Basie collectors, and serious lead trumpeters. The band is in its usual swinging form, and Snooky Young’s lead playing is in a class of its own.
