It took me a very long time to get this duet for 2 flugelhorns finished, the ending of the song was very hard to get it right. Bill Evans wrote a lot of great songs and this one is one of my favorites.Here a great recording of Bill Evans playing it live:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH3GSrCmzC8This will be the last one in Vol. III of my Jazz Standards serie. All 3 books will be published somewhere next month by qPress Music Publishing. But I still have a few to write and record.

Today I recorded 3 ballads on flugelhorn for my project with jazz standards: A Child Is Born, The Shadow Of Your Smile & In A Sentimental Mood. The sound isn't always great, I think I didn't get the levels right but anyway, it's only a demo to check the arrangement…? Here is the original score I started with.

Cotton Tail is great composition by Duke Ellington and challenging to play for 2 trumpets. Here another duet I wrote this morning for my project with only jazz standards.
