As recorded by New York Voices (“Sing! Sing! Sing” – 2001, Concord), this jazz standard is arranged in a “Four Brothers” close harmony style. The arrangement is based on the Woody Herman version, with the lyrics adapted and expanded to cover the more active 16th note melody. As with most of the NYV repertoire, this is a pretty challenging arrangement, incorporating close harmony and tricky harmonic movements. But a motivated group of singers should be able to handle it.
