Description:Straight from the Miller book, the Story of a Starry Night was originally arranged for the Miller band by Bill Finegan, and has been re-created by Myles Collins. Based on Tchaikovsky's Pathetique Symphony #6, this arrangement is on e of a number of classical pieces given the big band treatment. Scored for Miller-voiced saxes throughout, this arrangement shimmers and shines. The vocal (in Ab) is beautifully supported by just the right amount of band backings, the brass ranges are very moderate, and the whole chart is lush and rich. Fabulous.
