Girl Talk - The SEXIEST ballad ever

For those Jazz fans, or more specifically, Neal Hefti fans, I am planning to arrange 'Girl Talk' for Brass Band.

This Neal Hefti classic is one of the most sexiest tunes available, performed by numerous artits throughout the years, namely Maynard Fergusson, Tony Bennet, Julie London and Holly Cole.

I just wondered if anyone's heard this tune and would be interesting in playing it in your Brass Band.

Originally I was going to write it as a Flugel solo or a Vocal solo. If you are interested in that, then please say so :lol:
