Classic Gershwin, this is music all students should have the opportunity to hear and enjoy. As you probably know, the history of this composition dates back to 1924, since then it's been recorded and performed countless times, now it's your turn. Take notice how master arranger Paul Cook captures the essence of this beautiful melody, all the color and even the trademark counter melody towards the end, but scored it for the younger band. A brief tenor sax solo on the melody, otherwise it's all rich and full sounding ensemble, ideal for teaching phrasing. Flexible instrumentation along with easy brass demands and simple rhythms make this one a winner!
