The super-groovy Al Jarreau tune comes to life in a new way in this vocal jazz ensemble arrangement, featuring brief solo spots for either a baritone or soprano/alto singer and fun ensemble writing. The song moves between sections of 16th-note funk groove and samba feel throughout.
Fully-notated keyboard/piano and bass parts, drums
