Beyond gorgeous is the piece that is our song of the day today. Featuring the supreme lyricism of Ben Webster’s tenor saxophone, this composition is another example of how Ellington had the power to write specifically for members of his band. During my college years an ensemble I was in played the transcription of this song and I got to do the Ben Webster solo… I learned so much from those few bars of transcription than you can imagine. It is often said that the players of this era said more with less.
