Program Notes

Based on the famous Canadian Brass version by master arranger Luther Henderson, here is a wonderful adaptation for concert band by Michael Brown. Opening with a bluesy medium swing feel, the tuba section is featured on the melody along with a small group of players. Midway through the arrangement, the style changes to an up-tempo Dixieland style with the melody cleverly traded between various sections of the band.
