My Canonic Valentine

For Valentine's Day:

A canon at the octave for tenor sax and trumpet over the bassline for "My Funny Valentine."

It was fairly easy to put together -- somewhat like improvising over the chord progression but with an eye (ear) toward having it work for both "this measure and the next." The only necessary adjustments were some chromatic inflections to suit the chords.

Rather fun to write, actually.
