One of the most romantic songs of all time, this is a transcription of the Joe Cocker recording arranged for full Big Band with male vocalist. With it's lush jazz chords and gorgeous lines, there is plenty of smush here for any slow dance special. Also included is a optional instrumental ending that features the trombones to extend the length of this tune.

Two separate recordings each featuring piano and guitar have been released, so you can choose either of these to accompany in the first section, with an optional capo to make it easier on acoustic guitar. The trombone section can be featured as an option in the instrumental if you don't have a strong soloist. Smooth legato playing and emotive vibrato are needed in this tune, alongside a solid pianist or guitarist.

    After listening to many mp3s on this site I was pleasantly surprised to hear this track. Watching the score in sync was a bonus.
