As recorded by the Mel Lewis Orchestra with Clark Terry on the album Bob Brookmeyer, Composer & Arranger, this beautiful ballad with very reasonable brass ranges, a brief written solo for alto sax and a piano cadenza (written or ad lib) just before the final bars is an expressive masterpiece that ends in a whisper. Duration ca. 4:45.
