    I got the book. Started to go through some of the arrangements and my initial thought was oh no this is too tough and jazz is a little foreign to me-this will never work. Tried again later the same day. Started to sound pretty good. Some beautiful sounds. That...

    was 2 weeks ago. Can't stop playing the arrangements. What a marvelously talented arranger was Mr. Galbraith. My musical experience has truly been enhanced.
