Day By Day
Written by Sammy Cahn, Axel Stordahl, and Paul Weston © 1946
Arranged by Michelle Margiotta © 2011
My arrangement of Day by Day, for jazz combo, is dedicated to my grandmother, Isabel Vivone, who sang this song to me as a little girl. I was honored to sing this song for her shortly before she passed away to cancer in 2011. The vibraphone and brass take turns playing the melody in my arrangement of this jazz standard. The brass displays lush harmonies with the utilization of extensions such as b9, #9, #5, and 13ths.
