This melody is anywhere from 500 to 600 years old but this arrangement spiffs it all up and lets it groove.
Arranged to be a part of a jazz Christmas concert, this groovy little chart lets the drummer play brushes and do some drum fills during the melody breaks à la “Cute” by Neil Hefti.
39 written measures, ♩ = 120 (easy tempo) blowing over a minor blues on this flexible head arrangement written at an intermediate level of difficulty that is suitable for high school and above.
Parts for Trumpet 1, Alto Sax 2 or Trumpet 2, Tenor Sax 3 or Trombone 3, Trombone 4 or Baritone Sax 4, Piano/Guitar, Bass and Drums come as a PDF that you’ll be able to download immediately upon submission of your order.
