Radiohead is an English alternative rock band. They were ranked #73 in Rolling Stone's list of "the greatest artists of all time." James Miley's wonderful arrangement of one of Radiohead's most popular recordings really works great for big band. There is solo space for tenor saxophone. This tune has a mesmerizing effect on the listener ..... a very different piece indeed. Ranges are very reasonable. This arrangement was commissioned and recorded by the Buchanan High School Jazz Ensemble. Although there are optional parts for vibraphone and voice, standard instrumentation works very well. 5-5-4-4 (opt. vibes and voice).
