At a tempo of 140bpm, this chart provides a very accessible opportunity for the unsung hero of the rhythm section to shine. Soprano sax leads the sax section. A 24-bar trombone section+bass soli is wrapped between a trumpet solo and soprano sax and bass solos before heading onto the shout chorus. Trumpet range is to written high C. Trombone range is to Gb.
