Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This arrangement poses two challenges to the musicians. The rhythm section parts, along with the second and third horn parts, are full of tricky rhythms that will foster concentration and rhythmic execution. Also, the orchestration jumps from unison to 3-part harmony to emphasize certain notes in a phrase, and each member of the front line must know his or her role in the overall sound and play accordingly. You'll no doubt hear improvements in the unity of the group after working on this one.
SOLOS: These are great bebop changes, full of II-Vs, valuable to any player wanting to increase his grasp of bebop harmony.

IDREES SULIEMAN (b. 1923) A fine bebop trumpeter who remains active, Idrees Sulieman would likely be better known if he had not relocated to Europe for many years in the 1960s. He recorded with Thelonious Monk in 1947 and joined Cab Calloway's band in 1948. He subsequently worked in the bands of Count Basie, Lionel Hampton and Dizzy Gillespie. In the late 50s, he toured with Randy Weston before settling in Sweden. At that time, he also started performing on alto saxophone. He has worked with many other fine musicians such as Mal Waldron and Horace Parlan.
