This is the second edition of a Big Band instrumentation/reimagination of my arrangement of "My Favorite Things," which I originally wrote in abridged instrumentation for an informal E.P. recording project (entitled "R.B. & Friends"). It was expanded into Big Band instrumentation and workshopped in December 2019 as its first iteration. It has since then been revised into the more codified Second Edition, which features expanded sections and more soloistic interplay between the featured Soprano soloist and the band. If you are looking for an intense, 18-minute band feature that aims to pay homage to the visceral, pedal-driven energy of the infamous 14-min Coltrane recording, then this is the right choice for you.
