Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Ballad - Medium Easy

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

Liston primarily uses the sax section to state the colorful melody, with the brass providing fills. The brass take on a more prominent role in the double-time solo section which features several backgrounds behind a tenor sax, trumpet, and piano solo. The tempo - even in the double-time section - is moderate, there are no significant technical demands, and the entire chart is written in a very comfortable range for each instrument. This music is easy enough for beginners, but full of great musical moments that experienced musicians will savor. One double-length chorus is split up between a trumpet, tenor sax, and piano soloist. The changes consist mostly of a basic diatonic chord progression with some minor diversions thrown in for flavor. These changes can be played by most any improviser who's had at least some experience with chord changes.
