Description:

Here is a fabulous swing dance chart from the Count Basie orchestra of 1941, and if you play to a dance crowd, then this chart is a must-have number. After a punchy opening, the tune itself is just so bouncy that it makes your feet tap without you realising. The chart also features a wonderful bridge, leading to an ad-lib piano solo, then some great brass passages which give ample opportunity for plenty of fan-hat waving. The chart is then lifted higher by two chromatic key changes, an ad-lib Tenor solo and the final short shout chorus to finish. A rare jewel from the Count Basie book. There are no Sax doubles.
