||Medium up swing

Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
The melody is shared by the piano and the three front line instruments (flugelhorn, soprano sax, and flute on the recording) in two-measure phrases. Great for working on balance, intonation and unusual front line combinations. It also contains a full-ensemble chorus that can highlight a group's cohesiveness.
SOLOS: The solo changes alternate between a pedal point over which the chords change every two measures and a section in which the chords move more quickly.
