A marvelous tune by Hoagy Carmichael arranged by one the best in the business, Dave Wolpe. Treated as a ballad, this chart features your tenor sax player throughout with plenty of solo space. There is wonderful ensemble writing top to bottom and a beautiful ensemble chorus with some double time figures. Lead trumpet goes to written high C. Every note of every part fits together perfectly---Excellent! (4:07).
