"How Sweet It Is "
By: Sammy Nestico
Instrumentation: Big Band
Publisher: Warner Brothers Publications
Grade 3 1/2 Medium Blues/Swing Tempo = 108 $55.00

This hard-swinging blues comes from the Quincy Jones – Sammy Nestico CD titled “Basie & Beyond.” “How Sweet It Is” is a medium swing tune that fits like an old shoe. This tune is so comfortable and everything works just right.

Composed and arranged by legendary Sammy Nestico for the late Harry “Sweets” Edison this chart screams Count Basie. There is a swinging ensemble tutti section that brings the essence of Basie to the forefront.

Sammy includes solo space for trumpet, piano, second alto sax, tenor sax and trombone. The chart is not difficult, but dynamics and cohesive ensemble playing are an absolute must. This is a wonderful arrangement that belongs in every jazz library.
