This famous big band chart was arranged for Charlie Parker in 1952 by Joe Lipman. Lipman had previously worked with Parker on the his recordings with strings. This arrangement was recorded on March 25, 1952 in a studio on East 44th Street in New York. Featured on the recording were: Jimmy Maxwell, Carl Pool, Al Porcino, and Bernie Privin on trumpets; Bill Harris, Lou McGarity, Bart Varsalona on trombones; Charlie Parker, Harry Terrill, Murray Williams on alto saxophones; Flip Phillips and Hank Ross on tenor saxophones; Danny Bank on baritone saxophone; Oscar Peterson on piano; Freddie Green on guitar; Ray Brown on bass; and Don Lamond on drums. As this was arranged for Parker it is an alto saxophone feature. Originally, there was an 8-bar solo for trombone. For the recording session a piano solo was substituted. We have included this solo section for both trombone and piano so that the conductor may decide which to use. This arrangement has been edited and engraved from the original score - this is not a transcription. There are no saxophone doubles. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to D6 Trombone 1: to C5.
