Prelude to a Kiss
A superb feature for baritone saxophone, this is certainly one of Ellington's more beautiful melodies and another winning chart from master arranger Dave Wolpe. The perfect ballad showcase for your bari player with plenty of melodic soloing and no improvisation. A swingin' double-time section offers a nice contrast to this lush ballad. This chart is perfect for concert, festival or even a dance gig. Give the bari player the spotlight.
