1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax
2nd part: Alto Sax
3rd part: Tenor Sax
4th part: Trombone, Tenor Sax
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
A thoughtful and inspired arrangement. The melody weaves from instrument to instrument as the tapestry unfolds into the first chorus of the first soloist.
SOLOS: A long form (56 measure choruses), but the chords don't go by too fast. The 2 chorus background for a 2nd or 3rd part soloist gradually builds in complexity and intensity.
