This grade 1.5 piece is playable by beginning jazz ensembles thanks to friendly ranges and many unison rhythms, yet features contemporary touches that will appeal to experienced players as well. The minor key introduction triples as a chorus interlude and solo send-off. Thus the major key main theme is a refreshing music event. There is an open solo section for any player.
