Billy Strayhorn’s iconic jazz standard, recorded by Duke Ellington, is skillfully adapted in this easy version. From the trademark introduction, saxes on the main theme, and short written or ad lib. solos, this will sound great even with young players.
The Discovery Jazz Series features arrangements written for full band, playable with 3 saxes, 2 tpts., 1 tbn., rhythm section. Each arrangement includes optional parts for flute, clarinet, F horn and tuba and full length recordings available for each arrangement.
