Appreciating a Nestico chart the other day. Unison rhythms that just swung. I recently finished a 70's pop chart. Lots of unison lines but intricate rhythms. Quite a bit of work. Looking at the score of a swing master made me realize that simplifying an arrangement can really work and you probably get more "bang for your buck." That is, I might over-write my charts at times. Let's take that lesson into my next assignment.
