(No listening currently available)

Description: Curtis Mayfield’s soul ballad arranged for Big Band featuring a male vocalist. The piece starts with conversation-like mumble from the band, that transforms to an intro with hints from the original Impressions version. Two verses and the stick are followed by a not too long guitar solo over a chord variation. After the solo comes an ending verse with hybrid lyrics from the two first, followed by the vocalist’s “I’m getting ready!” statement with band backgrounds as the outro. The trumpets alternate between trumpets and fluegelhorns. Notated key: Bb with the outro in modulation to B.
