Yardbird Suite

As a reversal of the great ensemble Supersax, here’s an arrangement for five trombones featuring the solo from that Supersax take from Carl Fontana arranged for five trombones. I’ve embedded the Supersax track with Carl’s solo below.

This arrangement can be played with or without rhythm section as was recorded by Gerry Pagano and Mike for the album Roads Less Traveled or it can be played with a rhythm section. The chord changes have been included for a rhythm section.

The lead trombone goes up to a high D once in the Fontana solo and again as the last held note.

Here is recording of Carl’s solo within the Supersax rendition:
