This was requested by a reader just to find out if four trumpets could make this well known tune sound convincing. I hope it did. The use of a bass on this one is essential to give it the expected effect. The second part has most of the high notes but all phrases are carefully considered in order to give the players a rest before the higher stuff comes in. The piece contrasts the easy going swing with a more hard driving swing. If you have a pops concert on your calendar, this would please everyone.
