This simplified version of the classic swinger recorded by the Count Basie Orchestra opens with a 12-bar piano solo backed by guitar, bass and drums before entrances by saxes, then brass, lead to a full-band statement of the theme. Short solo fills throughout and the signature Basie-style ending will give your pianist ample air time while the band negotiates solid swing figures with good balance, phrasing and blend. The improvised solo chorus is assigned to 1st Tenor. Duration 2:45.
