A very cool tune set to swing at a medium tempo, the chart has simple melody that Terry White develops as he scores the ensemble with a big fat sound. It has written solos provided for alto, trumpet, and trombone and then a sax soli harmonized from Coltrane's famousGiant Steps recording. But not to worry, it's not difficult, just tasty with big dynamic contrasts and swinging sound.
