This medium uptempo swinger contrasts the head, where the rhythm section plays only rhythmic figures behind the horn line, and the solos which are in a steady swing 4. This chart also features a unique intro, interlude, and ending (with a Latin feel) and is great for tightening up an inexperienced rhythm section.
SOLOS: The changes consist of 16-bar sections, each containing a mini AABA form, and are not hard. The neatly arranged 4-bar phrases focus attention on phrase lengths and other large-scale concepts.
