Description:

This is an up-tempo riff-based chart, very much in the style of Fletcher Henderson. Originally scored for 4 reeds, 5 brass and rhythm, we have augmented the chart to a full 5,4,4,4 standard big band line-up. Unusually for a Goodman chart there is no Clarinet involvement. The solos are taken by Tenor and Trumpet - both to be improvised from the chords provided. As the name of the chart might suggest, this is a bouncy swing chart full of sectional call and response with a very punch shout chorus. Great for dancers or a concert audience. There are no sax doubles.
