I can recall two scored solos for big band:

1:  The Berigan solo on "Marie" has been scored for 4 or 5 trumpets, and
has been played by the Tommy Dorsey "ghost" bands.  Heard it about 15-20
years ago at a dance in Whitewater, Wisconsin.

2:  A 1948 Woody Herman Orchestra recording on Columbia, "I've Got News
For You",  has the whole sax section playing one of the Charley Parker
solos for one chorus.  Very well-played, and exciting.
