Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing/Latin - Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

In addition to the two full-length records that the Duke Pearson Big Band recorded in the late 1960s, there were numerous other arrangements that didn't get recorded. This arrangement of Sam Jones' standard 'Unit 7' is one of those tunes that was performed live by the band but never recorded. This arrangement alternates between swing (for A sections) and Latin (for bridge) and features a trumpet solo (written for trumpet 4) and alto saxophone solo. Both solos have Duke's typical great backgrounds happening. Trumpet 1 goes to F6 and trombones 1 & 2 get to C5. There are no saxophone doubles. In addition, a guitar part is included. The sound sample is courtesy of the Empire Jazz Orchestra.


  • Trumpet 1: F6

  • 2 Alto Saxophones
