Description:

Transcribed from the Jan Savitt arrangement as played by Glen Gray on the Time Life Swing Era (1939-1940 ) session, this is a roaring little up-tempo swing chart that pulses from start to finish. The Tenor, Trumpet and Rhythm solos are written out "as played", though your players can improvise their own if preferred. It's quite a quick tempo, but the chart is relatively simple, very playable and certainly very enjoyable. The chart opens in G, modulates to C for the unison Trombone soli and Tenor solo, and via a cleverly written descending bridge moves into Eb for the Trumpet solo. Another short bridge, taken by the rhythm section, moves the chart to Ab for the shout chorus.
