I've recently been digging Tiny's arrangements too, especially in Lawrence's band. Some of his stuff pre-sages what Quincy Jones later did in the 50s - lots of tight, internal harmonizations among the horns - cross-sectional groupings of horn lines.

On a side-note, any every noticed that Dave Frishberg's tune "I Can't Take You Nowhere" is based on Tiny's TNT?
