Description

Another crowd pleaser from Louis Bellson that can be played at medium groove tempo as performed by the Ted Heath Jazz Orchestra. Or, it can be an up tempo ‘flag waver’ to be a great closer, as recorded by the great Duke Ellington Jazz Orchestra. This composition was recorded by many of the big bands as it was a tribute to the most prominent jazz tenor saxophonists, Coleman Hawkins.

Instrumentation

Standard Big Band (5/5/4/4)

Additional Info

Optional extra percussion.

The recording is taken from a rehearsal and the sound is not great.  There's a cut at minute 1:11 (score measure 53).  At minute 1:22 is at measure 81.
