 This is a remarkable chart that features tenor saxophone throughout.

This arrangement has it all…….a solo piano introduction, a variety of feels (ballad, rubato, swing, 12/8), and stunning ensemble passages. This chart is considered by many to be one of the finest big band arrangements ever written, and Sierra Music is proud to be able to make it available to you. (5-5-5-4)
