“Your Smile" -- composed & arranged by Mark Miller.
RECORDED ON "The Birdland Big Band Live" in 2018
An uplifting gospel-pop song at a medium tempo that leaves the audience breathless. It features Trombone 2 (melody and improv solo), *Alto 1 (melody and improv solo),and Piano (or Guitar) playing an a cappella cadenza. The piece is in two large sections with the cadenza in between. The first section is in 4/4 (trombone) and the second is in 3/2 (sax solo).
*It is also available in a version that features Tenor 1 instead of Alto 1. Please let me know if you’d prefer that version & I’ll email it to you.
Written for: 2 alto saxes, 2 tenor saxes, baritone sax, 4 trumpets (with flugels in all parts), 3 trombones (2 tenors & 1 bass bone), piano, bass, drums
