Although this composition works great in a trio or quartet format, the Woody Shaw recording is a quintet, so second parts are available including a Trumpet second part (for a Soprano Sax melody). The C treble clef lead sheet has both horn parts notated and also contains some specific information for the bass and piano that you'll hear on the recording. There are some complex chord symbols (C6 with sharp 11 and 9, for example), as Ronnie had specific voicings for the pianist in mind.
Vocalist/lyricist Judy Niemack wrote a lyric to Jean-Marie entitled Like A Butterfly. It's in B minor and has an accompaniment-only rhythm section track.
