Solo backgrounds in Bob Curnow’s Big Band Arrangement of Pat Metheny’s song Always and Forever. This is from bars 31 to 57.

From the music description at Sierra Music:


“This beautiful ballad is featured on Pat’s newest recording Secret Story, and has been scored to highlight solo statements by flugelhorn, guitar or alto saxophone (your choice). It is a warm, pensive ballad with lush, moving harmonies in the Metheny vernacular, and scored for ease of performance and maximum emotional impact. As recorded on Bob Curnow’s L.A. Big Band, The Music of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays. 5-4-4-4 “
