A terrific ballad for younger jazz ensembles which can feature an alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, vibes, guitar, or flute soloist. Not very difficult, the lushly written backgrounds will give your young soloist the confidence to perform at their very highest level and well written rhythm section parts will insure an authentic feel to the performance. A superior choice for all performances by inexperienced jazz ensembles. Can't be beat!
