Description A pleasant and simple trad jazz piece. It's supposed to evoke a feeling of longing for the familiar. Please check out the recording for a sort-of realistic rendition. The last rendition of the tune in the recording is done with other instruments improvising around the tune for a proper Dixieland feel. I wholeheartedly recommend this - it adds so much to the overall feel if you've got other instruments noodling around.

That said, I think the tune is strong enough to stand on its own as well. Could even be sung, but alas I'm not good enough to come up with publishable lyrics!

I hope you like the piece. The relevant parts are all included in the PDF (Bb, Eb, C treble and C bass). Please get in touch if you need it transposed or if you have any other comments!
