As recorded on the CD "Back to Balboa" (and many other albums), this sensational piece moves along at a fast tempo, featuring solo space (the blues) for alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, trombone and drums.
Can you imagine a chart which is this easy to play being played and recorded by Maynard Ferguson? Well, that just demonstrates how catchy and wonderful this chart is.
As recorded by Stan
Kenton & His Orchestra on the “7.5 On The Richter Scale” album, this all time great standard receives a fresh
sound with the impeccable scoring talent of Marty Paich. This arrangement has it all…….a solo piano
introduction, a variety of feels (ballad, rubato, swing, 12/8), and stunning
ensemble passages. This chart is
considered by many to be one of the finest big band arrangements ever written,
and Sierra Music is proud to be able to make it available to you. (5-5-5-4)
