There is an eight-measure intro whose first four notes are a retrograde inversion of the beginning of the A section. This intro is also used as an ending, as shown in our lead sheet as a D.C. al fine after the out head.
Our lead sheets include the two-horn harmonies heard on the recording, which are mostly at the ends of melody phrases. The B♭ lead sheet is in the range where Dexter Gordon plays it on tenor sax. It could also work on trumpet an octave higher; however, on the recording trumpeter Woody Shaw takes the A and C sections down an octave, in unison with the tenor. We have a trumpet 1st part showing the melody in the register where Woody plays it. Our E♭ lead sheet is in the same octave for alto sax.
