Long Song Description:
This is an instrumental lounge jazz arrangement of the vocal version of Dapper. The key is a different arrangement than the vocal version since it is written in A minor. The vocal version is in D minor. The instruments are trumpet, trombone, clarinet, flute, saxophone, piano, vibes, acoustic bass and drums. The tempo is 116 BPM like the vocal version.
Story Behind the Song:
This is the vocal version of the song, Dapper. The words were written simultaneously with the music, however, as it evolved this instrumental version preceded the vocal version. Once I had the right vocal artist (Amy Harvey), I created a new arrangement to find the right key for her.
