Key written in: A♭ Major
How many parts: 6
Type: Other mixed
Lyrics: A few ba-das, da-yas, and some wahs
Comments: Nice wonderfully deep a capella muted brass ensemble-effect arrangement of this tune by Coltrane. You can hear how the melody and the chords carry over the presiding Eb to make a smooth cool neo-bop era jazz sound.
Note how the 6th part doesn't enter until the final phrase. It provides a surprise element concluding the tag. Demands high-quality blending and shaping!
