What a gorgeous ballad. This wonderful Gershwin standard, recorded and performed countless times, is ideal for your students to play and learn. Featured are beautiful chord changes throughout with nice block harmonies for the 'bones, a muted trumpet solo, and alto sax and tenor sax solos each playing written-out melodic lines. Speaking of chords, this is a great opportunity to teach students to recognize diminished chords. Your drummer is using brushes until the end, keeping this chart tender and sweet, and the brass ranges are quite reasonable with trumpet to G and trombone to F. It's a great change-of-pace ballad for any setting. Roy Phillippe truly captures the essence of Gershwin with this classy arrangement.
