This is another request from a new friend who wanted this done. I didn’t know the piece but after listening to it for a few days, I decided to see just where it wanted to go. The choral section in the middle makes a good contrast to the other sections and showcases the horns alone. The solo is written out and all of the high notes have optional notes. The counter melody at the end came to me one day and I think it is the best part of the chart. The interaction of the trumpets, bass and guitar is a wonderful combination. I keep playing this around my house all day long.
