Publisher SKU: JLP-8493

Good Bait had originally been written for Count Basie, and was copyrighted in 1944. Dameron also arranged the tune for the Billy Eckstine Orchestra, and when that ensemble folded, Dizzy Gillespie added the setting to his book, playing it frequently. Basie began playing it in 1948 after Gillespie popularized it. In 1962, publisher Bregman, Vocco & Conn asked Dameron to arrange this for big band publication, as well as other titles that he’d composed over the years that they owned. This version of Good Bait includes the unison brass line after the instrumental solos. All of the BVC publications had numerous errors in pitch, rhythm and transposition. This publication of Good Bait has been newly edited and corrected.
