John Lewis/arr. Mark Taylor - Hal Leonard Corporation
John Lewis (composer, pianist, and founder of the acclaimed Modern Jazz Quartet) penned Afternoon in Paris in the 1950s and it has remained a jazz standard ever since. This nicely crafted version for developing jazz ensembles opens with a small group on the head and drums on brushes. Solos for trumpet and tenor follow with suggested solos and scale/chord sheets provided, along with dynamic full ensemble statements. Highly recommended!
