Tenor Sax Feature

Thanks for your help on finding a good bari sax feature. Now, how about tenor sax? Are there any good tenor sax features out there? Have you played any of them in your jazz bands? You may also suggest awesome songs with tenor solo(s) in them. (any difficulty level, just as long as it's good) Thanks for your help!

      For the baritone sax, the song was called Moanin' played by the Mingus Big Band. It is a crazy song! Still waiting for help on good tenor features. Any suggestions?

          One song you might try is Sing Sang Sung (Gordon Goodwin's arrangement of Sing Sing Sing). On the CD Swingin for the Fences its a clarinet solo, but I have seen professional jazz bands just have the tenor sax player take it. Although it's not a feature, it's definately a big solo. Also, I just wanted to say that the local high school jazz band recently played Moanin' by Mingus and I thought that was an interesting coincidence.
