Mellow Drama is an OLD one! It's an original ballad from the 1960 album, Portrait of the Artist. It's another through-composed piece, though it does "feature" the piano. I wrote it for a smaller band instrumentation, made up of some of the greatest studio musicians of the time:
Gene Quill - alto sax/clarinet
Danny Bank - bass clarinet/alto flute
Ernie Royal, Nick Travis - trumpets
John Barrows - french horn
Frank Rehak - slide trombone
Bill Barber - tuba
Bob Brookmeyer - piano
George Duvivier - bass
Charlie Persip - drums
Thankfully, it is still in print and on CD. It is paired up with a Jimmy Giuffre album that I played on too. You can find it on Amazon (sometimes offered as used for cheap). To purchase the ablum from Amazon, CLICK HERE.
