You may think this chart is all swing but it begins as a Latin then alternates with a swing feel---very clever! The tempo is bright at around 190-200 BPM. With written-out solos for trumpet and tenor sax, a few piano montunas, a big shout chorus and the big ending closes up this fine chart. It's hot!
