Item Number: JL.JLP-8076

Here is Med Flory's arrangement of 'Chasing the Bird' as recorded by Supersax on the 1977 record of the same name. Charlie Parker's original solo was transcribed in full by Med Flory and then harmonized to be played by a standard big band sax section (2 altos, 2 tenors and 1 baritone) with a trumpet, trombone, and rhythm section (piano, bass, and drums). This arrangement also features an open solo section ('rhythm changes'). This is not a transcription. The original, hand-written manuscript has been used to produce this arrangement. This has been published with the authorization of Med Flory.
