Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Lovers of Billy May will love this chart too. A punchy 4 measure lick opens the arrangement, and it is re-stated during the chart too, helping to cement the structure of the piece. There are some May trademark sax lines (complete with little scoops), dynamic contrast between sections and passages, and a full chorus improvised Tenor solo in the middle. May employs an arranging trick which harks back to his time with the Miller band - the fade out finish down to pianissimo - with a double forte repeat of the chart intro to wrap the number up. There are no sax doubles.
