"Nightmare" was Artie Shaw's theme song and is an out and out clarinet feature. Shaw's solo has been written out completely, but please be aware that it is very tricky to play. Also, an alternative clarinet solo part has been supplied with this chart which retains the essence of Shaw's intent but is much more straighforward to play, making the chart playable by all. The reeds are scored for solo clarinet and 5 saxes (AATTB), and to give you flexibility in the section an extra alto part - the Tenor 1 part transposed - has been included making the saxes AAATB. If you need to drop a sax part because you only have 5 in the section and one playing the solo lead, the alto 1 is the one to lose. Aside from the solo clarinet, all the other parts are easy.
