This fresh setting of Ellington's immortal standard gives it a unique salsa twist! Though the vocalist (or tenor sax) is the primary feature, this chart showcases the whole band's ability to establish a convincing Latin groove. A soli featuring the vocalist, alto sax, trumpet and guitar is another highlight, along with additional solos for tenor and trumpet. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Scored in the key of Bb. Duration ca. 5:20.
