Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This is the 1966 Ellington version of Strayhorn's great tune, with Cootie Williams' trumpet solo (written on the 4th part) transcribed in full. This version also features an extended ending, giving more Trumpet solo time. Originally written for four saxes and seven brass, this version is scored for full sections. An excellent job of transcription by Jon Harpin, and a worthy addition to any library.

Swing @ 166 b.p.m.
