As the title suggests, it's a swinger with a hints of the classic Gene Krupa drum pattern. The tempo is around 200 BPM, lots of action for the trombones, written suggested solos for trumpet, tenor, trombone, and drums, a huge shout chorus, add great dynamics and well-notated rhythm parts too. Optional parts include vibes. It's big!
