Alan Baylock has created a sonic landscape for the full ensemble and a tenor saxophone soloist from one of Charles Mingus' most lovely and soulful ballads. The tenor gets the spotlight with an elongated introduction and cadenzas at the end while the full band is highlighted with beautifully scored ensemble passages in between. The lead trumpet range is to written B-flat, and optional parts are included for flute and vibes. Ideal as a festival change-of-pace selection, it's also perfect for almost any program. A truly superb setting!
