Quit with the nostalgia, Marc. You're making me cry... ;-)

Speaking of Neal Hefti, I was digitizing some of my LP's and came across a Woody Herman LP w/notes by Herman. He says that in Caldonia, there is a key change in the middle at the end of the piano solo, which leads into the famous trumpet riff. Apparently the riff was written by Hefti for another arrangement in the Herman book and they decided to insert it into Caldonia instead. Since the riff was written in another key, they had to modulate Caldonia to that key in order to insert it into the arrangement.
