(from the performance notes by Jeffrey Sultanof):
Historians now consider The Miles Davis Nonet to be one of the most important ensembles in the history of jazz. Certainly such composers as Shorty Rogers, Andre Previn, Marty Paich, John Graas, Jack Montrose, Manny Albam and Andre Hodeir were heavily influenced by the nonet, as their music shows.
Happily, many of the original parts of the sides recorded, plus parts for other compositions and arrangements for this ensemble, were discovered in three cartons of music that Miles Davis put into storage in Philadelphia and reclaimed after his death. In 2002, my edition of 12 scores from the repertoire of this ensemble was published by the Hal Leonard Corporation. An article detailing the editing process and errata in the folio itself was published by the Journal of Jazz Studies in 2010. These Jazz Lines Publications are extensively re-edited, and I now consider these new editions definitive.
This arrangement of Jeru features solos for trumpet and baritone saxophone. Included are alternate parts for the horn (trumpet 2 or trombone 2) in the event that you don't have access to this instrument.
Horn in F (or Trumpet 2 or Trombone 2)
