As recorded on Supersax Plays Bird. Charlie Parker's original solo was transcribed in full by Med Flory and then harmonized to be played by a standard big band sax section (2 altos, 2 tenors and 1 baritone). This is a very difficult arrangement but well worth the workout. Med said that it took his band nearly a year to rehearse in advance of recording each of the Supersax records. There is a trumpet solo on the recorded version, but that can be an optional part. This is not a transcription. The original, hand-written manuscript has been used to produce this arrangement. This has been published with the authorization and full support of Med Flory.
