Best known as performed by Forefront, this Anthony Bartholomew arrangement really cooks! Composers Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen wrote the track for Frank Sinatra’s album of the same name and were considered by many to be his personal songwriters.
Keep the tempo moving, smooth and not rushed, on this fun, fast-paced (and not for beginners!) chart. A swing feel is crucial throughout this piece, so be sure to focus on the eighth note values and lock them in. The lead has a little more leeway on this arrangement and, within the chords, can really show off their ability to wail!
