Description:

Co-written by Chummy MacGregor (Miller's pianist) and George "The Silver Fox" Williams (who wrote extensively for Ray Anthony) this Glenn Miller chart is both an excellent swing chart, as well as being a lot of fun. Opening in half-time the chart picks up into a lively swing tempo with the Piano taking the first (improvised solo) chorus. Then the whole brass section gets their chance to sing the tune. There are solos for 1st Tenor, 2nd Trumpet and 1st Alto (all written out in full), followed by a ripping sax soli. The chart plays out in true Miller style, building and building to a thundering climax which just swings like crazy. Baritone doubles Alto.
