The inspiration for Back to Basie and Blues Hues comes from the tradition of blues and improvisation. During the 30’s the Count Basie Band dominated the dance halls with its eighth note underpinning and syncopated rhythms. But “swing” is better described by the way people danced to the music. Light-footed, smooth seamless transition, coordination and balance, high energy; these descriptions apply to the dancing as well ato the music. Keep this in mind when learning and performing Back to Basie. Guitars I and II in particular should as pproach the melody with a light touch in order to execute the more difficult passages in the bridge but not lose intensity and bright tone needed for the melody. Pay close attention to articulations and dynamics.
