Arranged by Paris Rutherford, this sweet and tender setting of the song co-written by Peggy Lee and Johnny Mandel, is very approachable, and the lyric story offers plenty of opportunities for emotive storytelling. Although marked here as SSATB, only a few notes of second soprano are utilized in the closing bars of the chart. A refreshing and uplifting intro slows down and settles reflectively into the main melody, which is set with a mix of unison, 2-part and 4-part harmony that is friendly to the ensemble members' ear. A brief and ballad-style soli section leads into a moment for some light wordless improv, and a soprano or alto lyric soloist takes a few phrases. Rutherford develops by changing the key into the head-out before revisiting the intro theme and faster tempo once again, and then the piece settles with one more quiet look back. A perfect chart for developing groups who wish to delve into delivering a lyric with sincerity.
