Blues in Hoss' Flat (Blues in Frankie's Flat) - arr. Frank Foster (Grade 4)
Recorded by Count Basie
A medium shuffle blues in D-flat scored for the Basie Orchestra in 1957. This chart was featured in the Jerry Lewis film The Errand Boy. The chart features solos for tenor (not heard on the original Roulette Records recording), trumpet, and trombone. Recorded by Count Basie Orchestra on Chairman of the Board. For many years facsimile copies of Frank Foster's score and parts were reproduced and published by Walrus Music Publishing. This edition has been carefully prepared and engraved from these parts. Several note errors that were found in the original set of parts have been corrected as well. Articulations and dynamics that reflect the Count Basie Band interpretation have been included so that this arrangement may be faithfully reproduced. This would make a great festival piece or concert opener/closer!
