Benny Carter - Jazz Lines Publications
Absolutely beautiful, this Benny Carter alto sax solo feature is the perfect vehicle to feature a student or guest artist. The ensemble parts are accessible and provide a lovely background for the soloist. The solo part is fully notated with changes. Carter originally wrote this melody in 1960 for inclusion on his "Further Definitions" album (it was originally titled Blue Star). In 1992 he took the tune and created this big band arrangement as an alto sax solo feature. Highly recommended!
