As recorded by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra on their Consummation album (Blue Note), this tender ballad in 3/4 time draws its strength and power from the purity of a simple melody line and delicate accompaniment figures. Soloists include piano and trumpet (or flugelhorn); an optional solo sheet for vocalist, featuring lyrics by Alec Wilder, is also included. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Duration 4:04.
