A song written over 100 years ago and recorded countless times is arranged here in an unconventionally burning swing tempo! A blast of sound kicks off the chart, and then the verse is utilized as essentially as a long introduction to the chorus melody of the tune, which is sung mostly be the ensemble, with a brief solo breakout. Improv space is included, with backgrounds, an exciting, but singable, soli section and trading section with the drums develops the chart before a key change and big final chorus sendoff. Great as an opener or closer for an experienced ensemble!
Fully notated piano and bass parts, drums (Score included)
