Sierra Music is pleased to present yet another wonderful, contemporary composition by Patty Darling.

This new piece from Patty is a slow swing in 3/4 with elements of sparsity and transcendence throughout along with an abundance of solo space for flugelhorn that really intensifies this sentiment. “Gratitude” is the perfect contrasting piece for your program to add that element of variety every band and audience needs. (5-4-4-4)  This arrangement is a bit easier than the Pro version because it does not change keys (to C# minor).  This is a TERRIFIC tune, full of the happy, spirited, hip melodic and harmonic stuff that we've all come to love about Pat's music.
