    Not long before he died, Ralph Patt sent me the band parts for Charlie Christian's Solo Flight. I thought I had shared them here earlier, but can't see any evidence of that. There doesn't appear to be any copyright, but if I'm wrong I'll remove them. So here they are!

    Lovely, thanks. But I notice on the guitar part you only get a beat and a half to change the strings --- CC must have had a dexterous roadie!

    Haha. I assume that means play the following passage on a different string. Maybe not.

    Christian - why not? It would be great fun to play.

    You shared them a few years ago, and I've performed it with a number of bands (even on CC's 100th birthday) thanks to you.
    Thanks again.

    I thought I might have! No harm in sharing them again.

    I think I will actually try it out once my band meets again. We have „only“ 5 horns but that may still work out. Thanks for sharing, Rob!

    You can adapt it, Steve. That would be great.

    I like that the piano part is exactly the same as the rhythm guitar, usually it’s the other way round.

    Expect a recording in a year or two... and I need to transcribe the Benny Goodman solo, which the arranger very conveniently left for the alto player to „improvise BG style“.
