A gorgeous Vince Mendoza composition, originally penned for piano trio album, now enhanced with a deep and contemplative lyric by Kurt Elling. Plenty of opportunity to tell a moving story with lots of interesting words for the ensemble to deliver, and wonderful harmony presented for the group with attention to voice-leading, and some orchestral-style big, climactic moments as well.
mixed notated/chord chart piano and bass, drums. Mixed voicing also available.
