Seldom do I run across any well written songs any more, but this is definitely an exception.

Most of the work is in the trumpet parts which trade responsibilities throughout. Even the horn , trombone as well as a couple short tuba solos are included.


Most of the parts are playing half notes behind the melody parts which save the chops for better things.


If you are looking to “update” your quintet library, this would do very well for your younger crowds.
