Recorded by the Terry Gibbs Dream Band
Arranged by Bob Brookmeyer, Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof

Here is a fast swing chart from Bob Brookmeyer, originally written in 1956 for the Mercury album 'Swingin': Terry Gibbs and His Orchestra.' Terry Gibbs later re-recorded this same arrangement twice in 1959 with the Dream Band.

This chart features solo spots for vibraphone and tenor saxophone. An open solo section has been added so that you may feature any number of soloists. In addition, optional B flat and E flat solo parts have been included so that this arrangement may be played with any guest soloist - not just a vibraphone soloist.

As with all of the Dream Band charts, this arrangement is full of rich, sophisticated harmonies and interesting rhythmic sequences. We have published this arrangement from the original parts as supplied to us by Terry Gibbs.
