Ballad (contemporary even 8th-note)
Here is a beautiful setting of a traditional American folk song, set as a contemporary even eighth-note ballad. The haunting melody is enveloped by lush harmonies and orchestration. Optional piano voicings are included throughout, and the trumpet/flugel soloist can play over the changes or the optional written solo.
