Time to revise my old big band scores, originally written for Willem van Manen's Contraband in the 1980s and 1990s.
Let's start with BANK, with a soprano sax feature (theme & solo).

From Wikipedia: The word bank was taken Middle English from Middle French banque, from Spanish banca, from Old Italian banca, meaning "table", from Old High German banc, bank "bench, counter". Benches were used as makeshift desks or exchange counters during the Renaissance by Florentine bankers, who used to make their transactions atop desks covered by green tablecloths.

This version is for a traditional big band line-up, with a funky guitar part and with a Fender Rhodes, in straight eigths instead of the usual (boring) jazz swing feel.
And don't miss the free role for the double bass (if possible play with Scott LaFaro in mind).
Garritan samples for the horns, Band in a Box for the rhythm section.
