John Lewis (composer, pianist, and founder of the acclaimed Modern Jazz Quartet) penned Afternoon in Paris in the '50s and it has remained a jazz standard ever since. This nicely crafted version for younger bands opens with a small group on the head and drums on brushes. Solos for trumpet and tenor follow, along with full ensemble statements.
