A note-for-note transcription of this classic Steely Dan track from the album Aja. This version is arranged as a big band instrumental and is based on the original chart by legendary LA session player Tom Scott. It features tenor saxophone, playing both the melody in the first half of the first verse and the improvised solos in the middle section and towards the end of the chart. Trombones also feature in the second half of each verse, and solo trumpet takes the melody in the first half of the second verse. The chorus melody is played by the alto saxes backed by the trumpets. The chart is interesting harmonically, featuring typical Steely Dan chromatic chord changes (Dmaj7 - Asus2/C# - Cmaj7 - Gsus2/B).
