Bernie Miller/arr. Marty Paich
- Jazz Lines Publications
If you have a stellar alto sax player, or want to feature a guest artist, this is the chart for you! In 1959 Art Pepper recorded 12 tunes backed by an 11-piece "little big band." The Marty Paich charts focused on "Modern Jazz Classics" including this arrangement of Bernie's Tune.
This bright swinger featured Art Pepper as the featured soloist on alto sax. The instrumentation is Alto Sax 1 (Solo); Alto Sax 2; Tenor Sax; Bari Sax; Trumpets 1 & 2; Horn in F; Trombones 1 & 2; Piano; Bass and Drums. Trumpet 3 and Trombone 3 parts have been included as alternates for the Horn in F. Edited and engraved from the original score and parts, this is a challenging vehicle for both soloist and band, but it's well worth the effort. Really a great chart!
