Featured at the 2012 West Point Army Jazz Knights Composers Forum, this Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award and Downbeat Award-Winning piece is great as a a concert opener. It showcases the ensemble's dexterity, with an invigorating tenor 1 solo and a guitar solo that morphs into a dirty bar room shuffle!
