This is one I finished a little while ago, after my college combo received this chart to perform this semester. It's Benny Golson's tenor solo on Tom McIntosh's "November Afternoon." This is transcribed from The Jazztet at Birdhouse. I believe it was originally recorded in 1961, but released (or re-released?) in 2002. Golson plays the third and final solo on this recording, after Art Farmer and Tom McIntosh.

It's a 40-bar form in concert F minor. These are really fun changes to play over (I didn't transcribe the changes, they're from the original arrangement from At Birdhouse as offered on ejazzlines), and the little horn interlude that's played right before Golson's solo leads into one of those breaks that soloists live for… the whole part is only about 10 seconds long, but it's just so tasty! The head of the tune is also well-composed and fun to play.

Enjoy!
