Gunslinging Bird Composed by Charles Mingus. Arranged by Steve Slagle. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 07010394, UPC: 073999641424)

The opening cut from the Mingus Big Band CD “Gunslinging Birds” is this raucous and blistering jazz waltz. Mingus wrote this piece as a tribute to Charlie “Bird” Parker with the subtitle “If Charlie Parker were a gunslinger there'd be a whole lot of dead copycats”. This chart doesn't hold anything back!
