This is an arrangement of the 1911 favourite (based on a Zoot Sims and Al Cohn version of the tune), that features the two tenors and the baritone saxophone playing the melody. After the solos, the five saxes play a chorus in harmony (a transcription of Al Cohn's improvised solo) and the rest of the band joins in for an ensemble chorus. No doubles, standard instrumentation.
