Here is a classic that is already considered a standard from the next generation of American composers. Johnny Mandel wrote this gorgeous melody that is hauntingly beautiful, and Roy Phillippe arranged it for the younger band to feature the piano, alto sax, and trumpet. Flexible instrumentation and optional parts are included, along with some rich section harmonies, trumpets in harmon mute for musical color, and a powerful ensemble sound that will make your band sound terrific. Roy Phillippe is a superb writer who delivers the right stuff. You'll enjoy this fine chart.
