"My Favorite Things" (Rogers & Hammerstein, Arr. RB) is the fifth track of "R.B. & Friends," a large-scale, multi-ensemble collection of student jazz compositions/arrangements in an informal but high-level collaboration between a NY-based jazz composer and his peers at Manhattan School of Music. All music written and self-recorded within three days.
This is the first version of my arrangement of My Favorite Things that saw the light of day; it has since been expanded in duration and orchestration to several versions, notably "My Favorite Things" (Third Edition) for Big Band.
This version, in addition to the notated instruments, contains expanded virtual instruments that I added in a sequencer, namely MIDI strings and overdubbed horns — all derived out of the piano part.
