ISBN 0769269893. Wind band accompaniment scored by Donald Hunsberger.
The wind accompaniment to George Gershwin's popular piano solo, "Rhapsody in Blue," is based upon the 1924 and 1926 Grofe editions for jazz band and theatre orchestra. Donald Hunsberger has scored this edition for 23 players which produces a leaner and more muscular version to serve as a companion to Thomas Verrier's setting for full concert band or wind ensemble. (See Verrier listing above under Grade IV-V.).
