This was inspired by a recording of one of my favorite Jazz musicians- John Coltrain. The opening copies the actual recording and includes a Tpt 1 improvised or written solo with background figures. It ends with an interesting vamp for additional improvisations for Tpt 1.

The styles switch throughout the arrangement from Latin to Swing and back again.
