Item Number: S1.SMP-618
This is a new edition (Finale computer notation) of this wonderful composition. It is available with a full score for the first time. Exactly as recorded by the Stan Kenton Orchestra on the "Kenton '76" CD, this is, unquestionably, one of the best things Hank ever wrote for Kenton. Once you get by the 9/8 meter (not too difficult), the reasonable ranges (1st tpt. high D only) make this a very playable chart. The melody is absolutely lovely, and there is solo space for alto, tenor and trumpet. 5-5-5-3 (can be played with only 8 brass) ,.
