This is a wonderful feature for baritone saxophone! It was recorded by the Stan Kenton Orchestra on the Kenton '76 CD. It opens with a slow, pensive melody (bass and soloist only) and continues with backgrounds through the rest of the melody. The soloist then sets a brighter tempo with a 4-bar break, and the soloist and rhythm section continue for a while until the band is cued in. Limited ranges (except for one measure in 1st tpt.) make this a very accessible chart for most bands. Hurray for Hank Levy! 5-5-5-3.
