This as you will find out is not a jazz piece at all but just written to be played by a "dance" combo. My band plays this all the time to the delight of our dancers and for some reason it’s become a "hit" in our circles. There are two other versions on this site for piano solo and piano/violin (more formal in nature) but this new one is just the tune twice through with a saxophone lead the first time (you could choose any other instrument you’d like) and a piano solo on the repeat. Of course you can easily add a bass player and a drummer but they won’t need parts. If you play for dances I’m sure your crowd will love this one. The score has only the piano part visible so you need only to get the parts. The attached recording is new (Nov. 2017).

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
