This enduring standard by Hoagy Carmichael continues to sound fresh year after year. The notable recording by Ray Charles with it's lush harmonies and bluesy ballad style is hinted at in this easy setting for jazz ensemble. The short solos for trumpet, sax, and trombone may also be played as section features. Great for developing balances and ensemble playing.
Enjoy great flexibility with the Discovery Jazz series! Playable with 3 saxes, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, piano and drums.
