Arranger Frank Mantooth does it again. He takes a great ballad like "Misty" and twists and blends it into a terrific swing arrangement. Wait until you hear how well this tune works as a medium tempo swing. Solos (written or ad-lib) for alto, trumpet, and trombone are offered with backgrounds and optional repeats. The shout chorus brings it home. Full instrumentation plus a vibraphone part is included along with the usual optional flute, horn, and baritone horn parts. Outstanding writing on a great tune.
