Amen to Maynard's version being in your worst! The first time I heard it I didn't even know what song it was!

The melody is horribly underplayed while the entire song focuses on a new, high trumpet part (gee, i wonder why) and some backbeat from otherwise great drummer Stockton Helbing.

WHAT???!!!!

I do soooo disagree with your assessment of Maynard Ferguson's rendition of this tune. It was hip, stylized, and vibrant, if a bit unconventional. Not your typical elevator music by any means.
