    Classy, Steve.

    Enjoyed your arrangement and Bosso beat.

    Re: "Hark! The Angel Harold Swings!"

    Larry: FYI
    The ending chord is three chords; that particular area is in the key of Bb. The ending is an F major triad (dom) on top, a Bb major triad (tonic) in the horns, and an Eb major triad (sub dom) on the bottom.

    Leaf & Rhap2: thanks for the kind words. Is it too obvious that I am a brass player (bass trombone) and I also like, if you'll pardon the expression, a big bottom?

    Sos:

    How about an EbM (13+11)? [I'm thinking from bottom up: Eb-G-Bb-D-F-A-C]

    It's amazing how triads can layer themselves so they
    fit into extended chordal harmonies. Cool sound.

    Re: "Hark! The Angel Harold Swings!"

    Rhap2:

    You are correct. It is precisely, in my personal chord terminology, an EbMA13(#11), a big difference between an Eb13(#11) because a 13th chord usually implies an extension of a dominant chord, with the flatted seventh. I could go on and on-------------- however no guitarist has that many fingers and the piano player doesn't need to be mucking up the voicing of the horns.
    I've been using the Standardized Chord Symbol Notation system, by Brandt and Roemer, for years, having found none I like better.

    Thanks for your input,

    Always a pleasure to hear a real craftsman at work, Steve; fine
    arranging, as always!

    Had some trouble getting the file to play properly, I think -- but
    got it enough to follow the harmonic work.

    My best,
