First adjust tempo…175 minimum. This is a montuno which is often mistaken as a samba or merengue. The bass line must be as written. The harmonic structure for the solos is indicated and is limited so the soloists must think in lines, not just a lot of notes. You must use claves full time–-no claves–no Latin Music. Intonation and a relaxed feel are needed to make this swing. If there are no solos, skip letter "E/EE" and go to "F" for the 2 bar chase solos, into the cascade, rhythm section solo, quiet interlude to sign. etc.

If you want a Maynard or Buddy chart, look elsewhere. This series of charts uses nothing more complicated than eighth notes, are not frantic or screamers, extreme ranges and are hemi-demi-semi-quaver free. They depend on intonation and the players being not intimidated by what he is asked to play. There is no contest to see how high you can go before you need oxygen , how many notes you can play in 9 seconds or before your bell overheats , or how long it takes the audience to cover their ears Relaxed and confident players always play more in tune. Good harmonies, lines and realistic rhythm patterns will produce a good result that will swing and be enjoyed by player and listener alike.
