At least I think it’s written by Gigi Gryce… Nah, it is. Although it’s sometimes mistakenly credited to Quincy Jones, there are some similarities in hipness with such Quincy tunes as Jessica’s Birthday. I transcribed this from the Clifford Brown Memorial Album, featuring Harold Land & Gigi Gryce. My purpose was to bring this arrangement in to play with John Reynolds Quintet. Rather than transcribing the true 3-horn arrangement, I morphed the alto & tenor parts into a single tenor chart, hopefully combining the best notes of each.

    Many thanks for great transcriptions. I run a small group in Wales, uk, and hope to play 3 wishes at gig on 28th. Musicians I play with often prefer to play well known tunes and I am the opposite. Your site is very useful for me.
