Just Like That maintains a feel-good, relaxed swing throughout and provides opportunities to feature and challenge all sections of your band. After the full ensemble intro sets the stage, the melody is passed around through different parts of the group, supported by a melodic two-feel in the bass. The melody chorus builds in texture and intensity, leading to the solo section. Chord changes are provided for optional solos in Alto 1, Tenor 1, Trumpet 2, Trombone 1, and rhythm section. Soli sections for trombones with bass and then saxophones follow before building to a full ensemble section and a recap of the last half of the melody.
