1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Tenor Sax, Baritone Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
A comfortable melody that moves from swing to Latin on the bridge characterizes this composition. The chart smoothly integrates unisons, two-part harmonies, and independent contrapuntal lines in the horns to create a unique setting that will be rewarding to play for musicians of any ability level.
SOLOS: The changes stay mostly in B-flat and are full of II-Vs, making them a great set of easy solo changes.

PAUL CHAMBERS (1935-1969) Bassist Paul Chambers was a product of the fertile Detroit Jazz scene, which produced such legends as the Jones brothers, Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris and many others. Paul got his start playing with Paul Quinichette and George Wallington. After moving to New York, he became a member of the J.J. Johnson/Kai Winding quintet. He was perhaps the top bassist in Jazz from the mid '50s to the mid '60s, having spent eight of these prime years with Miles Davis and his driving "walking" bass is featured on many classic Davis sessions, mostly as part of the legendary rhythm section of Chambers, Red Garland and Philly Joe Jones. In addition to a few recordings as a leader, Chambers also recorded with John Coltrane (who wrote Mr. P.C. for him), Bud Powell, Cannonball Adderley, Lee Morgan, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Kelly and others.
