This is a fun arrangement of a tune hot off of Sara Gazarek’s latest album, Thirsty Ghost. Sara and Larry’s song sings like a classic jazz standard but moves the art form into the future! Students will enjoy getting to know Sara’s music and artistry.

Matt Falker makes the chart very accessible and provides several voicings to best fit your ensemble. He adds in the necessary inflections and stylistic markings making it much easier for anyone new to the jazz genre. Take time to decide the types of inflection you will use together before learning the chart. This song can work with a rhythm section or a capable jazz pianist. There are several places for solo opportunities. The smooth voice leading sounds harder than it sings- a wonderful thing!
