Program Notes

The first movement was inspired by the 1940s hit Sentimental Journey, which was first performed and recorded by Les Brown and His Band of Renown with vocalist Doris Day. Scored at a medium swing tempo, the piece effectively conveys the spirit, charm, and energy of the swing era with lyrical melodies, lush harmonies, solos for trumpet and trombone, and attractive contrasts of texture and dynamics.
