You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To (Cole Porter, Arr. R. Buonaspina)
for SATB jazz choir & Big Band
2.2.1 / 4 / 3.1 / SATB / rtm. (+gtr)
This is one of my first-ever "published" arrangements, materialized originally as my final project for Dr. David Lalama's Intro to Jazz & Commercial Arranging undergraduate class at Hofstra University. The unprecedented level of devotion to crafting my first "serious" Big Band arrangement marked, for sure, a very serious turning point in my life and career as a musician/composer. After the arrangement was completed, I reorchestrated it a bit through the summer months and tacked on an SATB jazz choir to assume the role of melody. I helped premiere the arrangement in Spring 2018 by singing Bass in the Hofstra Vocal Jazz Quartet.
Performed live at Hofstra University at the Spring 2017 Big Band Concert
