Originally, the alto sax was to play the entire melody, but then I found that the tenor sax had a closer sound to what I was looking for. The alto sax now only covers a couple of brief higher passages in the melody.
Most of the instruments are JABB:
Drum Set (although I only use the Hi-hat)
This is a cool tune. I had never heard this either. Nice smooth and balanced sound on this. Maybe the instruments could be panned a bit wider? I thought maybe everything was a bit close. I have enjoyed hearing this one, hope to hear more. John
Well I saw "Dick Tracy" - a wonderful comic-strip-inspired movie, and Sondheim's music was one of its best elements. He did a superb job of adding period charm and class to an all-around classy film production.
Excellent track you produced from this!--I remember the tune, now that you've brought it up in my consciousness again.
Really good job at getting an intimate sound to your jazz ensemble.
