This arrangement starts off moving very quickly with a strident bass line. One can almost see Cab Calloway striding across the stage in his zoot suit.
After one stanza and one chorus, there is a transition to a higher key and a slow blues feel. One stanza is followed by two choruses where the full sonority of six saxophones is explored with some jazz-inspired harmonies, followed by a brief coda.
