Gunslinging Bird Composed by Charles Mingus. Arranged by Steve Slagle. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (07010394)

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!
