Ballad, Alto Sax feature
Every concert or festival program needs a great ballad that features a talented member of the band. This delightful piece features alto saxophone, and is written so that the melody is situated in the most comfortable and resonant range of the instrument. The ensemble accompaniment is robust, though very accessible, and the band alternates between swing and straight eighth-notes, something thats very common in more advanced jazz ballads. This chart features Kendor Konvertible instrumentation, meaning that it is playable by as few as 9 and as many as 17 players. Each set also includes a guitar chord chart by Jim Greeson and optional parts for flute, clarinet, horn in F, tuba, and vibes.
