Kander and Ebb were a highly successful songwriting team consisting of composer John Kander (born March 18, 1927) and lyricist Fred Ebb (April 8, 1928 – September 11, 2004). Known primarily for their stage musicals, Kander and Ebb also scored several movies including their most famous song, the theme song from Martin Scorsese's New York, New York. Recorded by many artists, “New York, New York” became a signature song for Frank Sinatra. The team also became associated with two actresses, Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera, for whom they wrote a considerable amount of material for the stage, concerts and television.(Wikipedia)

Dit arrangement is geschikt voor beginnend kwartet. Alleen aan de eerste altist worden wat hogere eisen gesteld: in de melodie zitten enkele passages met vrij hoge noten. Deze partij kan ook door een sopraansax worden gespeeld; dan is de partij eenvoudiger.
