Description:

A classic from the pen of Sy Oliver, this is the vocal version that Anita O’Day recorded with Gene Krupa, and is a mix of powerhouse swing that you would expect from Krupa's band, and a laid-back, slightly humourous vocal chorus from O'Day. It features a blasting Trumpet solo near the end, and a wonderfully conceived modulation into the vocal chorus. We have written out the Trumpet solo, and the little Piano fill-in solo in the intro too. This is a medium to advanced chart in terms of difficulty, because the Trumpet solo screams up to a high E, and 1st and 2nd Trombones have to pick a top D out of the air at one point. Other than that, it is pretty straight ahead, and there are no sax doubles.
