An arrangement of Errol Garner's classic melody for solo piano in a relaxed jazz ballad style. Performance duration is about 4 minutes, and a performance can be viewed at youtube.com/c/rupertaustin/videos.
The first two verses (bars 1-16) and the first appearance of the bridge (bars 17-24) are presented with little change to the original melody. Rich harmonies are used along with some substitutions of the original chord changes. Two more verses are then presented (bars 25-39) where the tempo remains the same but shorter note values in the right hand are used to explore aspects of the melody and the harmonic changes. Here the left hand mostly moves in quarter notes and maintains the pulse of the music. The highly ornamented approach in the right hand continues in the second appearance of the bridge (bars 40-47). The piece then returns to the more simple presentation of the main melody with a repeat of the first 14 bars, followed by a brief coda to close.
