But the tune labeled as Danielle's Waltz on Amazon is actually In a Sentimental Mood from another Mickey Bass album.  From the Allmusic.com listing, Danielle's Waltz matches the timing of #2

Does he still sell these titles? I noticed some of them are sold out...

Mickey Bass is selling this title on his website: http://rainbowjazz.com/product-category/cds/cds-physical-copy/

I liked the liner notes for this cd. The author applies the SEND IN THE CLONES designation to the unnamed, but numerous contemporary players. Very apt.

The buy button on that site doesn't work.  If you want to buy without PayPal, there's this little bit of helpfulness:

Please send a check to Store Name, Store Street, Store Town, Store State / County, Store Postcode.

It's listed for 40 on Amazon, but that's more than I will go for.

Sorry, we tried...

It appears to be a scarce title. There's no record of it in the Discogs.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about "Emily" and "Spartacus" here. While they indeed have the same first six notes of their melodies, and are both waltzes, Spartacus is in a minor key, hence giving it a tragic quality, while Emily is in a major key, and has a kind of prettier, lighter quality.

However, on the Bill Evans/Jeremy Steig LP, Bill Evans adds a parallel major section that, AFAIK, was not in the original Alex North score.This genius move on the part of Evans (or whomever first thought of it) makes it a wonderful blowing vehicle, which is what BE's harmonic choices are all about.

This change gives a sense of triumph to the song, as if a victory has been achieved over some some dark force, which Emily lacks, so that's another way to differentiate it from Emily.

I wrote a big band arrangement of Spartacus (along with about 25 or so other songs (originals and obscure movie themes/standards) over the pandemic, and hopefully in Sept. we'll start playing again, and I'll be able to hear it played by real instruments,instead of the synthesized accordion sounds of MuseScore.

Nice to see an interesting breakdown of the two tunes here,
but I can assure you that there’s not “a lot of confusion” here
about those songs. My comment comes from the fact that,
sometimes, for a second or so, my brain seems to want to 
favor Spartacus...probably because the John Young Trio 
version was often used as a “theme” song - usually as a closer -
to a jazz radio show in Chicago in the late 60s/early 70s that I
grew up listening to regularly. Plus, my mother played this album,
Themes and Things, quite often (well, she played lots of things often).

Some great songs here. I have that Nat Adderley CD but it's a recent purchase and I've only listened to it a couple of times. Love it though. Thanks for the BFT!
