From the Quincy Jones and Sammy Nestico CD titled Basie & Beyond. Music legend Quincy Jones composed this beautiful swinging ballad and arranged it together with the great Sammy Nestico. This chart demands dynamics and tasty backgrounds. It has an engaging melody that features either tenor or soprano saxophone along with some sparse piano fills. If you want to teach your experienced band how to play loose, laid back and relaxed in the Basie style, then you found the perfect chart. Exceptional! (1:15).
