Written for and recorded by Wayne Bergeron on his Grammy winning WAG Records release, You Call This A Living?, this jazz waltz arrangement of Tschaikowsky's classic work from The Nutcracker is an ideal showcase for a big band and its star trumpet soloist. The band parts are scored at the medium advanced level, while the solo part is advanced. You'll love the way Liston has modernized the chord structure while staying true to the composer's intent. The rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Duration 4:30.
