Standing next in turn in good mood; finished "Straight, No Chaser" with a fast tempo.

What the Thelonious are we describing?

I was trying to find something quite complicated, but soon got the feeling that something was

up.

In particular:

Standing up,
You're up (next in turn)
Not feeling down (in good mood) (trying to avoid unfortunate mix-ups by this choice of words)
time's up (finished)
Straight up (served with no ice and no chaser)
uptempo (with a fast tempo)

And since we are clearly on the theme of music here, I'm guessing this is the final answer that OP was trying to sneak past us.
