This is one very cool and tasty ballad. After a short 4 bar piano intro,the melody is played by a quartet made up of your strongest players - t rumpet, alto, tenor and trombone. The whole Band joins in for some greatensemble work (trumpets never leave the staff) which leads into an easy but very hip piano solo. Then more great ensemble, and finally the pian o is again featured at the end. The piano part is completely written out, and the right hand has a single note line throughout. There's nothing high, loud or fast here - but what a great way to impress and audience by showcasing your band's ability to play with A Gentle Touch.
