We have all done the James Erb arrangement and once in a while we like to try something a little different. In true Luboff style, the harmonies and the slow jazz/swing feel to the piece give this a totally different feel than the Erb setting. There are divisi parts and there are some gorgeous but tricky chromatic harmonic chord changes at the end that make the piece the rich lush setting it is. If you like Luboff, you will love this arrangement. Let the hips move and the body sway as your delight your audiences again. I give this five out of five stars.
Level of Difficulty: 4 out of 5; Baritone or Alto solo
