(Level V) But Beautiful - Another standard bites the dust! This one features some "meaty" changes and a groove that alternates between hip-hop and straight-ahead swing. Trumpet and guitar (piano can substitute) are prominently featured throughout before the powerful tutti recap leads us into a very funky ending with soloists blazing! Guitar also get to show his/her sensitive side with a rubato into to their solo. Recorded by the Jazz Surge on "Madcap" and commissioned originally by the Band of the U.S. Air Force Reserve Jazz Ensemble. Lead Alto plays soprano. All other woodwinds double, optional percussion. 8 Brass.
