If you are searching for an easy standard song for your young quintet or looking for a beautiful arrangement for your more advanced ensemble, this is a perfect solution to your needs. The solo part is in the trombone and the counter parts are done in a simple, yet complex nature. Each counter melody seems to be the most important part yet the melody in the trombone part seems to be a counter melody rather than the melody.

Your audiences will truly enjoy this popular jazz standard and your players will recognize the complexity of this arrangement.
