 ?Four Brothers? is a good example of the bebop language that was developed by Parker and Gillespie being arranged for a jazz orchestra.  The melody or ?head? of the piece begins at 00:00 and ends at 00:34.  How many bars is this melody section?  What is the form?  Use letters to designate the sections.  What section of the band is playing the melody?  Which section is playing in support?  The four saxophonists, Sims, Chaloff, Steward and Getz each play a solo between 00:35 and 01:43.  How many choruses are played between the beginning of Sims? solo and the end of Getz?s solo?  Describe the call and response between the sax section and the trumpets at 01:44.  Herman?s clarinet solo begins at 02:02.  In what section of the form is he soloing?  Describe the riff that the band is playing at 02:20.  How does this piece end?  Generally speaking, this band would have performed for what type of audience?  How does this ?bebop? big band treat or arrange the melody differently from the swing big band arrangements (of melody) that you have heard?
