The Night Is Swingin'

A swing with a small walk, this came about as I was sitting in the family room and improvising over Dave Brubeck's "Blue Rhondo a la Turk" and in the background was John Pizzarelli playing the jazz commercial for the Foxwoods Casino on my son's TV with it's familar jingle and line of: "....Let's have a ball...... For the wonder of it all...."

So I came up with this somewhat of a morph of the two pieces.

Granted meter and measure are different than the Turk, as well as a few misses and some sour notes in my sequence. I'm not yet adept at the on-line authoring tool, so I have to work it out.
