Everybody will recognize this Mancini gem. Mike Lewis treats the band right with this tasty, yet fun-to-play swinger, but throws some heat to the saxes with some fun solis and a clever modulation from E-flat to F. There are no improvised solos and the lead trumpet range is to a written G on top of the staff. Sounds great with reduced instrumentation and includes optional parts, too. Packed with all the swing figures and phrasing you need to teach your students how to swing. (3:05).
