A simple chart over blues changes. The intro is interesting, as it is almost choral in nature, and should be played with a classical feel until bar 10 (where marked). The tempo of the swing section is marked .| = 150, however, I normally play it a shade above that, around the 170 - 180 mark.

All the sections take tune parts, with cues marked in on saxes for Tpt 4 and Tbns 3 and 4 in places. These cues are really for emergancy only, as ideally the piece works better with just the one section playing their tune.

I havent finished formatting the parts - please email if you want a set before I upload them.

Note quite sure what happened to the tempo change, hopefully it works now
