Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Ballad - Medium Easy

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

Colorful voicings, unusual harmonies, and shifting orchestrations make this a great way for your band to focus on intonation, blend, phrasing, and dynamics. The melody is very simple and the tempo is moderate, making this piece playable even by beginners while providing a great deal of musical substance for a mature band. With its quiet, contemplative quality, it works great as a contrast to any of our uptempo arrangements. There's a solo for the tenor sax which can be a little tricky (the chord qualities are familiar but they occasionally occur in an unusual order) but the slow tempo gives the soloist plenty of time.
