This is recorded on the Tonight Show Band CD "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst Records). Tommy does it again with a marvelous chart on this classic Mercer Ellington tune. This medium shuffle features solo space for tenor and trumpet, and it is written in the best tradition of the big band swing style. This is terrific! 5-4-3-4 with opt. parts for as many as 9 brass players.
