Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Optional Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This Billy Strayhorn arrangement was written in 1939 and recorded as both a vocal feature (with vocalist Jean Eldridge) and as an instrumental featuring trombonist Juan Tizol. This publication is presented with a vocal part but also may be used a trombone or tenor saxophone feature. The original Strayhorn chart was arranged for four reeds (2 alto saxophones, tenor saxophone, and baritone saxophone). An optional 2nd tenor saxophone has been added that may be used as a featured part. This part has only the vocal melody - no re-scoring or re-arranging has been done to the Strayhorn original.
