A meditative yet emotionally powerful setting of an important classic song that already has more than one wonderful chart existing in the vocal jazz ensemble world. This version is based on the approach taken by Cassandra Wilson on her 2015 album "Coming Forth By Day", and uses an ethereal, spacey approach in the rhythm section and dense homophony in the vocals, with no solos. The published chart features a piano/vocal chart as well as a full score so that both the pianist and director will be able to follow the illusory "random" rhythmic moments in the accompanying instruments.
Fully notated piano, bass, drums and optional violin parts, piano/vocal combined part, full score
