This swinger cooks at MM=172. The melody is stated by tenor 1, bari, trumpet 2, trombone 1 and guitar with solos written-out for those instruments. A stop-time chorus, an absolutely kickin’ shout chorus, lead trumpet range to written B and the optional vibes part make this chart even better. Premiered at the 2012 Midwest Band Clinic. Fabulous chart!
