Groovin' medium tempo blues with harmonized choruses from a solo by Brad's favorite jazzer, Jimmy Cook. Excellent vehicle for your plunger/growlin' jazz soloist. Swings hard. Range to double G (optional double C). Characteristics of Brad's writing/arranging include tight, fresh harmonies and voicings. Can be played with four trumpets (drummer takes the breaks ala "Cute").
