Originally composed and arranged in 1989 for the West Virginia
University Jazz Ensemble I as a Master Class Study in the style of Count
Basie. Based on minor key version of "Rhythm Changes" (see the tune -
I Got Rhythm) and minor blues changes with emphasis on harmonic minor
scales instead of blues scales. Main theme is based on the "Snake
Charmer Theme", but is really written in honor of the 1966 Shelby Cobra
427SC, my favorite sports car - fast, loud and powerful! Don't forget
to check out the hidden staves, that's where all the action is! This
