With its hip chord changes and riff-y melody, this tune became an instant jazz standard. Ellington’s 1933 chart starts out sedately, but quickly shifts gears to swinging figures and modern voicings. Other than clarinet doubles, there are no technical difficulties. Lead Trumpet to high D.
Style: Fast Swing
Solos: Trumpet, Trombone, Alto Sax, Clarinet, Bari Sax
