You'll hear this arrangement a lot, because your band will ask to play this familiar tune again and again. After a slow introduction featuring solo alto and piano, a new tempo is set and the high energy rock begins. This chart doesn't just cook - it nukes! The powerful (and safe) ensemble writing leads to an open solo section for any instrument over basically just one chord. Then a key change from Eb to F sets up a big finish. What began as a folk song about New Orleans becomes a hard driving rock tune in this easy to play arrangement that your Band and audiences will love.
