Description:

A hit for the Harry James Orchestra, this transcription is taken from HJ's 1955 studio recording. It is a medium tempo Trumpet & Tenor feature that just grooves along at a relaxed pace, with a bluesy laid-back feel. We have written out HJ's Trumpet solo in full, but have left the Tenor solo open for improvisation by your player. The Brass ranges call for Trumpets 3 & 4 to reach high Bb and Trombones to reach high A in the unison pasages, though the feel of the chart will not be lost if some of the players drop down an octave. There are no sax doubles.
