Description

This ballad draws inspiration from modern classical music in the context of the big band.  The chart features alto 1 as a soloist throughout with a brief melodic departure for flugelhorn.  The improvising changes are modern and require a good handle on modern jazz chord progressions to be played well.  There is a nice ensemble chorale in the middle with plenty of chances for displaying the ensembles musicianship.

Instrumentation

Standard Big Band (5/5/4/4) + Alto Feature
