This arrangement of one of the great standards of the jazz repertory keeps a driving straight eighths groove throughout and uses mostly wide-open jazz harmony, a rhythmic motif in the vocals and a cool electric bass figure as unifying elements. There's an opportunity for vocal or instrumental improvisation, with some fairly simple vocal backgrounds to accompany, and the chart ends cold with the vocalists on a rhythmic stab, giving a nice surprise to your listeners.
