This wonderful jazz standard by Thad Jones is now updated by John Denton. It moves smoothly through a few styles as a ballad, a moderate jazz waltz, and a bossa in four all the while keeping the beauty and integrity of the original chart. There are written or ad lib solos for 1st alto sax and 2nd trumpet. Gorgeous chord voicings, tasty contrapuntal lines, and a perfect melody make a very musical chart from top to bottom. (4:40).
