Description: Frank Mantooth is one of today's most creative arrangers for jazz ensemble and he treats us here to a marvelously unique take on this well-known standard. The style is straight-ahead swing but the harmonic structure is fresh and the ensemble writing is super. It starts with alto and trumpet on the melody and includes solo space for any combination of alto, trumpet or trombone.
Description: This jazz standard has certainly stood the test of time and has been recorded by countless artists over the years. Here is a wonderful medium swing version scored with an authentic sound for young players. A duet of alto and trumpet is featured alternating with ensemble passages and section features. Sure to sound great even with limited rehearsals.
Enjoy great flexibility with the Easy Jazz Ensemble series! Playable with 4 saxes, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and rhythm; includes optional parts for flute, clarinet, F horn and tuba.
