I have Sammy Nestico arrangement of Samantha for alto sax.
And it is different between arr.for Trombone.
However You are right, maybe Sammy Nestico did arr. For Bill Watrous band as well.
It's will be nice to find that score ,but it is impossible unfortunately
But Thank You for the answer.

Sammy and Bill were good friends, and always spoke of each other warmly. And Samantha is Sammy's chart, so nobody else would dare touch it. I have little doubt he'd do a custom chart on it for Bill.

(Transcribing jazz solos is fraught with difficulties because exact rhythmic notation is well-nigh impossible. So listen carefully because it's the only way to learn how to play jazz trombone so that we can return to the Golden Age.) 8-)

I have this score and charts. (for alto sax).
And as well, transcribed this version for trombone .
I tried to do my best, but did not check yet it with the band
I still searching for original score, and will be grateful for any information about that.
