Eleanor Rigby Composed by Lennon/Mccartney. Arranged by Eric Richards. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 07011995, UPC: 884088861230)

Commissioned by the US Army Jazz Ambassadors, this arrangement by Eric Richards shines new light on the beauty and depth of the classic Beatles hit. An up-tempo Brazilian groove gives way to hints of samba and songo, but always with a smooth and laid back feel. Piano solo is featured off the top, followed by a trio of tenor, trombone and guitar on the head, and later solo space for one or more of these players. A brief nod to the classical feel of the original Beatles track helps build to a climactic shout for the full ensemble. Nice!
