Title: Take the 'A' Train
Genre: Saxophone Quartet
Instrumentation: SATB Saxophone Quartet
Of the collaborations between Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, "Take the 'A' Train" is perhaps the most popular as well as memorable swing-era compositions to audiences universally. This transcription effectively compresses a 17-piece big band into four voices without losing any of the intensity of the initial arrangement. Improvised solo in the soprano saxophone chair.
