Beatrice is another all time favorite of mine. A tune that never really ‘resolves’ with traditional harmony and always keeps moving forward can make for some interesting options to improvise and interpret the tune. Sam Rivers wrote this for his wife and the deep emotion and love isn’t hard to feel. It’s a song that doesn’t need a lot of help in the arrangement department as it stands on it’s own very well.
