    About “Like Someone in Love”:

    “Like Someone in Love” is a classic jazz standard. For my big band arrangement I expanded the melody a lot with long notes, creating a whole harmonic texture underneath it created from counterpoint lines. It is very powerful, and I always love playing it live. This arrangement is part of my big band album “Tramontana” (2018).
