Swing, 6 Horns & Rhythm
Quite possibly one of the most famous jazz arrangements of all time, this Gil Evans arrangement is presented here as recorded on Miles Davis' Birth of the Cool, directly from the original manuscript. All solos have been transcribed, though chord changes are included in the event that your players wish to improvise instead. This is not a complicated arrangement and is within reach of most proficient bands. Solos are featured for baritone sax, trumpet, and piano. An alternate B flat part for the French horn is included that may be played by a second trumpet or a tenor sax. And, the tuba part may be played by a bass trombone. If there was ever a must-have arrangement, this is it. This Jeffrey Sultanof Master Edition comes with complete performance and historical notes.
