Transcribed Trombone Solo: This is a tour de force performance by the then 24-year-old trombonist Julian Priester. After maneuvering through the anything-but-simple melody, Julian solos trombone for two complete choruses, then he plays a chorus of fours followed by a chorus of twos with drummer Elvin Jones before jumping right back into the challenging head. The exchanges are included in the Transcribed Solo.
