Written by Benny Goodman and Lionel Hampton, this tune was a mainstay of the Goodman Sextet, featuring Charlie Christian. The version that we offer you here is transcribed from the Ted Heath album Swing is King, recorded in 1968, and it swings really hard and fast from start to finish. Because of the tempo, the unison sax lines and the high range of the Trumpet solo we have graded the chart at the advanced level. The Trumpet solo is written on the first part but cued on 2, 3 and 4. The same is true for the short 4 measure Trombone solo in the middle of the first chorus. The Piano solo in the intro is written out in full. Alto 1 is written on Soprano for the first chorus, though is equally effective played on Clarinet. Aside from this there are no other sax doubles. This chart is classic Ted Heath.
