Here is Joe Lippman's brilliant big band with strings arrangement that he did for Charlie Parker. Recorded in 1952, it is presented here directly from the original manuscript--this is NOT a transcription. However, everything Parker played on this recording has been transcribed and presented here as-played, though the part originally written for him is also included in a separate staf. So, this arrangement can be played without the need to mimic Bird. This chart was scored for solo alto sax, 2 altos (both double flute/alto 1 doubles piccolo), 2 tenors (both double clarinet), baritone sax (doubles English horn - written in F), 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 4 violins, 2 violas, 2 celli, harp, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. The brass parts have been augmented to 4 trumpets and 4 trombones. In addition, a bari sax part with a clarinet double has been included in the event that you don't have access to an English horn.
