From the Mercer Ellington Library. There appears to be a number from the Duke Ellngton Band Book: 28.
Blow by blow is contained in one folder consisting of 17 parts in Db Major concert -- in ink and photocopy -- in unidentified hands (Whaley, Jones, other?).
Parts in 2 groupings -- (i) 2 reeds - alto 3, baritone. -- (ii) 5 reeds - alto 1 (2), alto 3, Procope (2), tenor 1, baritone; 2 trumpets - trumpet 2 (2), Nathan; 2 trombones - 1, 3 (2); bass (2). Parts in grouping i are noted on the verso of parts for Diminuendo in blue, Folder B, grouping iv. Parts in grouping ii are located in Diminuendo in blue, Folder B, grouping vi. These parts are separate pieces of music, but they share the same apparent number from the Duke Ellington Band Book as Diminuendo in blue (28).
