We’re playing along with the sax here, without trying to stomp all over it. Heck, as trumpet players we’re not even supposed to be here!
The timing of the syncopated notes is key. This is the original R&B version of the song as performed by Joe Turner, which should not be confused with Bill Haley’s R&R cover.
