Sounds interesting @Pete Effamy - which tune are you referring to here ? I would like to get hold of it.There was a good arrangement of this done by Nigel Wood for Saxtet in the early ‘90’s. actually it’s from a George Shearing piano book and is a virtual transcription. It works well because the ‘jazz’ has already been done by Shearing and also his version has nice inner movement, and a great bass line so everyone is happy. I did a version myself as I used the book for 2nd study at college.
I also thought that this jazz performance by Andre Previn might work well for quartet/quintet, for the same reasons.
