Michelle Weir’s arrangement of this long time standard can best be described as a medium swing in the Count Basie style. The opening verse is sung by unison voices followed by lush chords and exciting rhythms. There is also room for a solo female voice in the middle of the arrangement. This is an excellent chart to teach stylistic concepts to your vocal ensemble. This chart can be performed with or without rhythm section.
