Description:A superb example of ensemble playing from the Ted Heath book. This version is not written as a slow ballad, but is a grooving mid-tempo swing chart that packs plenty of punch. The chart relies on some tight section work from the Brass, and strict adherance to the written dynamics in order to deliver the right feel. At just over 2 minutes it is not a long chart, but it is certainly a memorable one. There are no Sax doubles, and apart from Trumpets 1 and 2 having to reach high E the brass ranges are not too challenging.
