This is one of those charts that can be played by any reasonably accomplished big band (including high school players). It is Mulligan's own chart on his famous tune. The only recorded version of it, oddly enough, is the one on Road Show, and it was used as a vehicle for June Christy and the Four Freshmen to sing. They simply sing the instrumental lines which are in the chart. However, when the band takes over, it is obvious what a great chart this is. Easy swinging and wonderful music. 5-5-5-3.
