'Teach Me Tonight' is an excellent arrangement by Jason A. Smith. Lots of room for improvisation! "Stolen Moments' is an Oliver Nelson classic with lyrics by Mark Murphy. bittersweet clusters and quartal voicings are followed by a 12-bar minor blues solo vamp and out. 'He's Asleep' is a little known tune, written by Alf Clausen (composer for The Simpsons and Moonlighting), and the great lyricist, Tommy Wolf. The arrangement features contrapuntal vocal lines that weave around through mysterious text. Although the piece is harmonically sophisticated, when performed well, it has a feeling of simple innocence. This arrangement would be a worthy challenge for any experienced group. 'The Man I Love' is a 6-part arrangement with fresh reharmonizations. It features an alto soloist, who can stick to the score or embellish freely, depending on her character. 'How Do You Keep The Music Playing' is a beautiful ballad that was originally recorded by James Ingram and Patti Austin as the theme song for the movie, Best Friends. This four-part a cappella arrangement is sensitive to the melodic and lyrical development of the tune, and features the soprano section and/or a female solo throughout.
