In 1959 Art Pepper recorded 12 tunes backed by an 11-piece 'little big band.' The Marty Paich charts focused on 'Modern Jazz Classics' including this arrangement of the Charlie Parker composition Donna Lee. This arrangement features both altos and trumpet 2 playing the first half of the head in unison with just rhythm. The rest of the ensemble joins in for the second half of the head. Solos are for the lead alto saxophone and tenor saxophone. An alternate part for the Horn in F (trumpet 3) is included. This has been edited and engraved from the original score and parts as supplied to us by Laurie Pepper.
Instrumentation: Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, 2 Trumpets, Horn in F (or Trombone 3), 2 Trombones, Piano, Bass, Drums
