Wow! Arranger Jack Cooper has found the right combination to make this standard tune from THE WIZARD OF OZ work in a jazz ensemble setting. This one's a strong candidate for your festival or concert choice. With his expert arranging skills, Jack Cooper has taken this straight-ahead song and turned it into a jazz ensemble piece. An extremely interesting and creative chart ideal for the more experienced band, this one uses all the sections equally: solo space for alto, trumpet, or trombone; plenty of drum fills; ensemble backgrounds behind solos; and reasonable ranges. Teach harmonic awareness as the melody travels up and down and from section to section. The band will be thinking on this chart!
