A wonderfully veiled and inspiring lyric runs through this Sarah Jarosz song arranged by David von Kampen. The baritone split is brief, making the majority of the writing SATB, and the chart is highly approachable for many developing vocal jazz groups. Excellent and natural-sounding lyric phrasing makes the storytelling conversational and subtle throughout, and von Kampen's personal arranging style is present throughout in his artful use of harmonic tension matched with plenty of openness and some unison writing, as well as great fully-notated writing for the rhythm section. This understated arrangement will be very fulfilling for your group to perform.
