Mike starts things off in this familiar classic with a nice and easy ballad including plenty of unisons and then he provides a smooth transition as the chart moves into an easy swing feel. No improvised solos, just a nice chart that will teach the stylistic differences between a ballad and a slow swing. Easy brass ranges, a nice sax soli, and a quick rehearsal will make this the perfect change of pace for any performance. It will sound full with reduced instrumentation, and all the usual optional parts are provided. (3:24)
