Based on Cecile McLorin Salvant's stripped-down, lightly-swinging jazz waltz recording, this treble-voicing arrangement of the 1965 tune originally recorded by Aretha Franklin captures Cecile's brilliant phrasing and uses an approachable ensemble soli section in place of improv space and settles nicely back into the head out. No lyric solos are featured this time, either, making this a great piece on which to feature your SSAA group's ensemble singing skills throughout. Plenty of opportunity to work on swinging time-feel and phrasing with your singers, and a surely an enjoyable part of your set for your listeners!
Notated piano and bass, drum set
