Jazz ensemble (5-5-4-3) - Grade 5
Composed by Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967). Arranged by Bill Holman. Doc Severinsen Series. Jazz Waltz. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-958).

Item Number: S1.SMP-958

As recorded on "Tonight Show Band, Vol. 2" (Amherst), this chart won a Grammy for best big band arrangement. Holman took this great standard, put it in 3-4, and wrote scintillating counter lines that weave their way through the whole arrangement. Solo space for trumpet, and roaring ensemble passages make this chart something that should be in every big band library in the world. 5-5-4-3.
