Hard swinging chart written for intermediate-level vocal jazz ensembles who have more gals than guys. Bluesy harmony and some fun ensemble figures back up a soulful soloist. A surprising bossa nova scat solo section with backgrounds leads into a chilled out bridge before launching into more hard-swinging material for a shout section to the end.
Fully Notated piano and bass parts, drums
