Just like John Wayne said, "A bands gotta do what a bands gotta do" and your band will have lots of fun doing it with this great mid-level chart in the happy, swinging Basie tradition. Following the opening piano solo (written), everybody plays the unison melody. The saxes then take over with background punches in the brass. The open solo section for any instrument is over a simple blues in F. A very cool soli for tenors, bari, bones and bass sets up a finish that will have everybody tapping their feet and clapping their hands. A guaranteed winner!
