    Absolutely amazing! The song is so active, and as a lead Piano player this song without a doubt makes its mark amongst one of my favorite songs! It sure is not a simple song, as we started playing it at the end of our year. The song is lively, fun...

    and sure to impress most people that listen to it. I would suggest this song to any Jazz Band directors because not only is it fun for the crowd to listen to but the players you will see smiles on their faces. All in all, I rate this song 5/5 and great for anyone.
