Donna Lee was originally recorded by the Charlie Parker Quintet in 1947 and is based around the changes of "Back Home in Indiana". Over the years there have been some divided opinions as to whether this tune was a Parker composition or whether it was in fact the work of trumpeter Miles Davis. Either way, Donna Lee has become synonymous with golden era of be-bop and has been recorded and re-imagined countless times over the decades.
Scored for two altos, tenor and baritone, this Be-Bop favourite is a sure-fire audience pleaser. Opening and closing with the head in a blistering unison, this chart should prove to be an impressive roast-up for all four players. There is solo space for alto 1 but an optional cut allows this chart to be played without any improvisation. There is a harmonised transcription of a Parker solo chorus and there is also a optional part for drum kit.
