Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This arrangement was originally written in 1953 by Billy Strayhorn and featured clarinet and trumpet solos. Although it was recorded in the studio in 1953 and on several live occassions in 1965 (featuring clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton and trumpeter Cat Anderson) the most famous recording dates from the 1967 RCA studio session. This recording was released on the album ...And His Mother Called Him Bill album, recorded shortly after Billy Strayhorn died. This recording featured the brilliant trumpet work of Clark Terry.

This publication is derived from an incomplete set of parts, a lead sheet (in Strayhorn's hand), a copyright deposit sheet (also in Strayhorn's hand) and recordings from 1953, 1965, and 1967.
