Jazz Studio Ensemble Arrangement with Alto Saxophone Soloist. Full Score, Solo Alto Saxophone, Oboe, French Horn, 4 Violins, 2 Violas, Cello, Harp, Guitar (Optional), Piano, Bass, Drums
This arrangement was done by Joe Lippman for the second studio session that Charlie Parker did featuring strings (1950). The instrumentation on this one includes 4 violin parts, 2 viola parts as well as French horn. There was no guitar part; however, we have added one as an option. For the studio recording the drums only played during the beguine section of the tune. However, when performed live the drums were played throughout. So, we have added a drum part that covers the entire arrangement. This has been completely edited and engraved from the original score and parts. Harp pedaling has been included.
