Here is Gil Evans's arrangement of the Clarence and Spencer Williams classic blues standard Royal Garden Blues. This chart was written as a piano feature for Claude Thornhill. The reeds are arranged as: clarinet; alto saxophone/clarinet; tenor saxophone; tenor saxophone/bass clarinet; and baritone saxophone. The Horn in F part, arranged for two horns, is unison throughout. We have included trumpet 4 and trombone 3 parts that may serve as alternates for the horn part.
