Here I have two of my own arrangements played by live band, one of Michell Legrand's "You Must Believe in Spring", which has a somewhat inaudible bass melody, and of Dave Brubek's "In Your Own Sweet Way". These are my first two ever so check em out and tell me what you think.
Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

I only had time to listen to "In Her ...", but WOW! Excellent chart.

I'm a huge Thad Jones fan and if I didn't know this was your arrangement, I would have sworn he penned it. The way you countered the brass with the sinuey unison saxes was vintage Thad! Nice sax soli too.

If this was only your 1st or 2nd arrangement ... YIKES! I really enjoyed your writing. And you're lucky to have real cats perform it too. Nice work.

Regards,

Frank
