The bass ostinato at E and F is played on both the head and solos. There is no intro; the ending vamps and fades out on the E section without going to F.
On the recording, the bass doubles the piano melody an octave lower from the beginning until the last two measures of the D section. We have treble and bass clef parts for this trio arrangement; click on the Bass Corner tab for more details about the bass part. Though the third note of the melodic theme is usually played long—a half note—on the recording, as shown in this trio arrangement, when Kenny performed this song he often articulated this note short, as a quarter note followed by a quarter rest. This articulation is shown on our lead sheets.
