This is excellent! Arranger Roy Phillippe has nailed the gospel rock style with this Neal Hefti classic. Roy recognized that Hefti originally wrote this for trumpeter Harry James, so Roy appropriately starts off with a solo trumpet. A stop time treatment of the bridge section offers a nice change of pace for the rhythm players. Ad-lib solos are written out for Alto and Tenor Sax and the brass ranges are modest. Don't forget this chart will sound great with reduced instrumentation. This catchy melody makes a fun-to-play chart and teaches easy rock rhythms, too. Enjoy!
