John Clayton penned this gorgeous ballad treatment for the great Joe Williams. With exquisite reharmonizations and carefully crafted accompaniment figures, the mood starts out mellow then arcs beautifully to a full ensemble climax before tapering to a quiet ending. (Altos double Flute, Tenors double Clarinet, Bari. doubles Bass Clar.)
