"My Foolish Heart" is an arrangement of one of the most popular melodies ever written. It is very much in the style of the "Kenton Ballad," featuring the trombone section in a slow, richly harmonized setting. Also featured is a trumpet solo. The lush, warm harmonies and orchestration work beautifully with this tune. Although the Kenton Band is gone, this chart will hopefully help keep "the flame" alive. Curnow really captures the essence of the Kenton sound. 5-5-5-3.
