    This is a very accessible but relatively faithful arrangement for trumpets, saxaphones, piano, bass and percussion. I derived four distinct parts from it for my sons and I to play as a brass quartet (three trumpets and a baritone horn (the base line is very cool)), and it works well...

    , retaining the excitement of Birdland, while not being too difficult, 'though still quite challenging for younger players. First trumpet gets up to B above the staff, briefly, but apart from about 4 bars (which could be played down an octave), stays below G on top line. Second trumpet gets up to top line F. There are a few little bits from the original left out, but all in all this is an excellent arrangement.
