A fine swinging typical big band number with a powerful rhythmical and melodic percussion and also the electrical bass guitar. A piece that will turn you on and give you a mind to start dancing. The saxophone and the trumpet do some nice solo work. Peter Feigel, conductor of the Berlin Police Band made this fine orchestration.
