Setting: Shuffle Swing with Rhythm Section (Level 3)
This is the very song you think it is! I fell in love with this chart within the first eight bars. Jeremy does a wonderful job of re-imagining the song without losing the things that we love about the original. There are parts repeated, which helps to shorten the learning time and build confidence. If you needed to simplify the chart you could feature a quartet under the verses or just leave them solo and drop the backgrounds. Have the students compare and contrast the rhythmic feel of this version to the original to hear how hard this version swings. Instrumental parts are available, but this chart still works with just piano or piano and bass!
