  • Perdido

    Perdido was one of Duke Ellington's early big hits. The Duke's version is a very laid-back swinger that chugs along in a steady groove. The chart opens with a cameo Piano solo, the Bari Sax picks up the tune & improvises on the repeat, with the brass plunger figures pulsing away behind it. The middle 8 is taken as a Trumpet solo (written out) & on it goes! This chart is a solo feature for Tenor 2 & Trumpet, as both have improvised solos. Tenor 1 doubles Clarinet & there are no other sax doubles. Learn More
  • Take the A Train

    This is the 1966 Ellington version of Strayhorn's great tune, with Cootie Williams' trumpet solo (written on the 4th part) transcribed in full. This version also features an extended ending, giving more Trumpet solo time. Originally written for four saxes & seven brass, this verision is scored for full sections. An excellent job of transcription by Job Harpin, & a worthy addition to any library. Learn More
