Second parts are available for the two-horn arrangement. On the recording, the in head is played twice; the first time is split between eight measures of guitar melody and eight measures of organ melody, followed by the horns playing the head again. Our audio clip starts just before the horn melody. The horns play unison for eight measures, then octaves for four measures, and the tenor sax hits with the rhythm section for the last four. The out head on the recording is almost the same in reverse order: horns on the melody the first time, then a second chorus with eight measures of guitar melody, four measures of organ melody, and horns again for the last four measures.
The tenor sax second part goes quite low in the second half of the head, so our alto sax second part is an octave higher.
