This uptempo swing chart features challenging lines for the horns as well as complicated and exposed figures for the rhythm section. It contrasts a highly arranged, specific head with a loose, unstructured, free solo section, giving a great example of what's expected of a well-rounded jazz player. Players are expected to read complicated figures and play them accurately with other members of the ensemble, then make a quick transition into making music in the context of free improvisation.
SOLOS: Free improvisations.
