According  to Lord's discography.

- Arlen arranger for Dynamite   

- Tarto arranger for  Black Horse Stomp  

Don Redman was a member of Henderson's orchestra and an excellent arranger. Nevertheless, Fletcher used Arlen's and Tarto's arrangements (and a few more from Tarto).for these numbers. Were these published arrangements or did Henderson asked Arlen and Tarto specifically to arrange these for his band?

George Posnak Orch's is my favorite version... Adrian Rollini does the bass sax... QRS issue, maybe.
