Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Contemporary/Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Walrus Music Publishing

This original composition is based on the beautiful Michel LeGrand melody with a similar title. The piece can optionally start with piano solo alone (written out) stating the melody. The saxes drift in over a medium slow swing rhythm which, in turn introduces the full ensemble, stating the melody again in augmentation. This gives way to a faster rhythm which leads to an alto sax solo over harmonic pedals. A middle ensemble section (slower 12/8 feel) spins out thematic motivic development, followed by the faster swing tempo again. Trumpet ad lib solo over the song changes lead to a dramatic shout chorus. The ending is spectacular, in a slow tempo, lush and full. Solos: alto sax, trumpet. Woodwind doubles: 2 sets of woodwind parts are provided. One with no doubles, another (preferred) with 1 alto/soprano, 2 alto/oboe (can be flute), 3 tenor/clarinet, 4 tenor clarinet, 5.bari/bass clar. The two versions should not be mixed. The original version recorded by the Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orch
