    There are two arrangements that I know of. Our band has an arrangement by N Hall, but I've also played a different one.

    A wee spilling mistake! :rolleyes: (... and his arrangements are well thought-out as well as his conducting skills!)

    Alan Fernie has arranged it and it's published by Obrasso. We have played it quite a bit - quite straight forward and very effective. Goes down very well with at concerts, particularly with those who are fans of Classic FM!

    Should add that it's listed as 'The Second Waltz' in the catalogue!

    The one i played a couple of years back had taken the solo off the trombone part (as in te orchestral version) and put it elswhere in the band. I have very fond memories of one of my first solo bits in Youth Orchestra of playing a bit of a solo in the jazz suite, and I'm pretty sure it was in the second waltz.

    I also remember spending the opening 15mins of Eyes Wide Shut trying to work out why I knew the soundtrack, and then annoying the whole cinema by cheering with releif when I'd worked it out! :clap:
