(Level IV) One of Don's most popular charts ever and a major composition. A rich, multi-layered minor tune in a moderately fast 9 meter with plenty of shifting subdivisions. Eventually, everyone gets featured either as a soloist or as a section. A surefire showstopper that winds it all up with a dirty 4/4 blues. Optional trumpet passage up to E7. A Don Ellis Critical Edition. (Critical Editor Nick Di Scala) WW Doubles, 4 Reeds (Reed 1: Sop and Flute, Reed 2: Alto, Reed 3: Tenor & Clarinet, Reed 4: Baritone and Oboe), Solo Trumpet, French Horn, Tenor Trombone, Bass Trombone, Tuba, Drums 1, 2, 3, & 4, Violin 1 & 2, Viola, and Cello. 6 Brass
