Swing, AATTB w/Trumpet, Trombone & Rhythm
Recorded on the 1977 record Chasing the Bird, this piece is very difficult to play due to the tempo--moving along at 150 beats per half note. The arrangement features trumpet and trombone on the introduction but they drop out when the head comes in. There is an open solo section in the middle before a return to the head and then the intro is used as an outro. This is a very difficult arrangement but well worth the effort--guaranteed to turn heads and ears!
