Peter Eldridge’s own arrangement of his achingly beautiful composition from “Disappearing Day”, which featured him in duet with Becca Stevens, is written here for piano and vocal ensemble, and would be perfectly fitting in for a vocal jazz ensemble or a traditional choir. It’s written without solos in a simple, understated manner that feels meditative, reflective and longing. The nature of the repeated rhythmic motive, along with much of the piece written with a harmonic pedal, serves to set the listener up for some gentle surprises when the harmony and voicings take a turn before coming back home. Although a chart description isn’t normally the place for editorializing, I don’t mind saying here that I believe that this piece has the potential to be a vocal jazz classic in future years.
