Our a cappella arrangement is by the superb arranger and vocal-jazz specialist Steve Zegree, who died just last month from pancreatic cancer. At the time of his death, he was on the faculty at Indiana University; prior to his appointment there, he led the vocal-jazz program at Western Michigan University, where, in his "unrelenting, joyous and demanding" manner, he led the group Gold Company to almost 50 Outstanding Performance awards from DownBeat magazine, which in 2012 had inducted him into its Jazz Education hall of Fame.
