This arrangement is based on the Dixieland style 1950s recording by Louis Armstrong. A slow rubato intro gives
way to a bright & happy rendition of this classic spiritual. Armstrong's vocal melody is covered by the trombone.
A brief slow interlude like the intro again accelerandos back into the tune followed by a solo section. A transcription
of Armstrong's solo (mostly embellished melody) is included as well as some sample ad lib trombone doodling.
