This uptempo swinger is characterized by a catchy but not simple melody with a number of complimentary figures in the rhythm section. This arrangement provides a very accessible package which can really highlight the cohesiveness of a well-rehearsed, moderately skilled ensemble.
SOLOS: The changes allow at least one bar for most chords, and they stay within a few closely-related key centers. They also contain a number of harmonic devices that apply directly to many other jazz compositions and popular standards.
RALPH MOORE (b. 1956) London-born Ralph Moore is perhaps the country's most visible tenor sax player, thanks to his current gig with the Tonight Show band.

He has played and recorded extensively with Horace Silver, Cedar Walton (in Eastern Rebellion) and the group Native Colors, which he co-leads. Ralph has also worked with Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Barron, Bobby Hutcherson, J.J. Johnson and others. He has recorded several albums as a leader with sidemen such as Mulgrew Miller, Terence Blanchard, Benny Green, Billy Higgins and Smitty Smith.
