Something In A Summer's Day – Kirk Nurock

Composer/pianist Kirk Nurock's ballad is complex and compelling, the harmonies providing a perfect foundation to an emotional melodic interpretation by Don Sickler's flugelhorn. A Minus You (no melody) track is available as well as Kirk's own solo piano performance.
