This is movement 1 of Don's "Joyful Noise Suite" (a tribute to Duke Ellington). It starts out with a cymbal roll and a fanfare-ish intro which leads to a wonderful, happy, hip line stated in the brass. There is solo space for drums, trumpet, trombone, bass and alto saxophone. The original recording featured Dennis Mackrel, Bob Brookmeyer, Phil Woods, Tom Harrell and Dennis Irwin. This is a terrific chart with a light, puckish melody and big, swinging shout choruses. You'll love it! Needed doubles are soprano sax, clarinet, flute and bass clarinet. 5-4-4-3.
