Description:This arrangement is based on a 1960's Basie instrumental version, in the Neal Hefti style. It is a laid-back, relaxed swinger, mostly in ensemble but with nice counterpoint passages of unison Altos and Trumpets against Tenors and Trombones. The tenor solo can be played as written or improvised, depending on your preference. Likewise with the little Piano fills and licks. This chart is easy to play and yet will give that wonderful relaxed, almost lazy sound that was the feature of so many Basie arrangements.
