This chart combines a very playable melody line with challenging rhythm parts. It goes briefly into a 12/8 Latin and then into a shuffle before returning to its original swing feel. This is a great chart for teaching a rhythm section how to generate energy behind a simple melody and how to come in and out of the foreground in response to the melody line.
SOLOS: The solo changes are easy to play and hear, but they're always going somewhere interesting while avoiding II-Vs.
