This chart features wonderful ensemble parts which are completely written out. All the fantastic solos are also written out note for note except the piano solo (notated as solo ad lib with chord changes provided). It is possible to replace the piano solo with a trombone solo (cue changes provided in the trombone part) if your band is missing a piano player.
