    Li'l Darlin' is a Neal Hefti chart you must have (and play). But... Play it as recorded, not only as written. Listen to several recordings. There where times that Count Basie played it fast and maybe times that it was played slow. But always the eight note rest 5...

    bars after letter B is not played as a rest. you play the last note from the previous measure longer and keep playing it on the rest of the 5th measure after letter B, then go on as written.
