Description:This is a transcription of Charlie Barnet's original version, which also featured Bunny Briggs doing a scat vocal solo over the band in the first chorus. We have NOT included a part for this scat, preferring instead to have the chart as a band vocal feature. If you want the vocal scat we're happy to send it too. Barnet's Tenor solo is written out in full (on the Tenor 1 part), along with the little Soprano sax lick at the end, though this can be played on Tenor instead. The Trumpet solo is written out on the Trumpet 2 part. Brass ranges are high - lead Trumpet to high F, lead Trombone to C - so we have graded the chart as Medium / Advanced. There are no sax doubles.
