An SSATB arrangement of the classic ballad for advanced vocal jazz ensembles, based loosely on the recording by Carmen McRae and inspired by the writing style of Phil Mattson. (One bari/bass split appears at the end and may be omitted.)
A female soloist is featured at the beginning, during the middle of the 1st verse, and at the very end. Crunchy turns of harmony abound — lots of extended chords, #9 dissonances, and mid-verse key and texture shifting to keep your ears engaged. The piano solo after the first verse can be replaced with a vocal or instrumental solo. (A sample solo is written out for pianists who need it; chords are indicated.)
