Comments: Lots of inverted parallel-fifth-isms, though they spell perfectly legit cross-modal jazz chords. Tenor has the melody and everyone else swoops around under it. Note how the sheet music has the extra ending resolution measure for those who want to end on the 1 traditionally. Stay in the center of the pitch and you'll get the right effect.
