Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This arrangement was written by Gerry Mulligan in the mid 1950s for the Ray Anthony Band. Previously Gerry had recorded it with his quartet. He then later recorded it with the Concert Jazz Band. This particular arrangement was never recorded by Anthony, but it is a standout chart full of great ensemble writing. It is scored for 5 trumpets: the 5th part would have been played by Anthony and features a solo section. Also featured are solos for tenors 1 and 2 and includes an 8 bar battle between the two. And, as is typical with Gerry's writing, there is a great shout chorus. A midi recording has been provided so that you may get a feel for the arrangement.
