Take a fast and wild ride with this Bebop tour de force that moves at breakneck speed and lies deep in the heart of jazz.
Big band repertoire really doesn't get much more difficult than this arrangement. Taken at a blistering 300 bpm, this band showcase was arranged by Gil Fuller for Dizzy Gillespie's bebop band of the mid to late 1940s. Gillespie's big band performed this arrangement many times and it was used as a band theme.
