Arranged especially for the USAF Airmen of Note, this alto sax ballad feature is outstanding in every respect. The introduction features the trombones, followed by the alto solo with piano, development, more alto solo space, some double time sections, then back to the ballad tempo with the solo, and a big ensemble ending. The lead trumpet range is to written high E-flat and there is an optional 5th trumpet part. More than a ballad solo feature, this is a substantial jazz chart! Highly recommended!
