Transcribed by:Myles Collins
Description:This chart has been transcribed from the 1945 recording that Goodman made for the US Armed Forces Radio Service. We have adapted it to suit a standard 5/4/4/4 lime up whilst keeping the feel and flavour true to the original. This is a fine, up tempo swing chart in true Goodman - Henderson tradition, and makes for a great swing dance number or concert piece. BG's Clarinet lines are written out in full, the Piano solo lead line is transcribed, but we have left the Trumpet solo to your players own improvisation (but have included the melody cue and chards on the part). Saxes are written for CAATT and there are no sax doubles.
