is one of Maynard Fergusons biggest hits
Maynard Ferguson (1928-2006) was the Canadian Trumpeter that was well known for his enormous high range.
Maynards solo in the opening of this tune is a classic, in this arrangement it is somewhat shorter, but one can of course play the whole. In that case: listen to the song on the album 'Chameleon' from 1974 (and Good Luck!)
