As with all the Tina Brooks compositions offered by Second Floor Music, this uptempo piece has a catchy melody that swings naturally and changes that have an easy, logical flow and are rewarding to play over. The melody contrasts a rhythmically-active Latin A section with a flowing swing bridge. The solo section includes an exciting background behind the tenor sax solo that incorporates the entire band.
Note: this can be played by all saxes - a great sax section feature!
SOLOS: The solo section is over an uptempo swing feel throughout. The changes are very idiomatic and will be fun to play over for anyone with an uptempo bebop aptitude. II-V changes.
