First written for the Count Basie Orchestra in 1983 and later revised for the Sammy Nestico CD "This Is The Moment," this great blues tune features an extended, three-chorus soli for the sax section. Alto sax and piano are the designated soloists, with optional solo space also provided for guitar and trombone. The chart closes out with a very powerful shout.
