Rose Room, also known as In Sunny Roseland, arranged by Rich Willey for your “trad jazz” ensemble. This is a tasty take on the 1917 Art Hickman and Harry Williams song (named after the Rose Room in San Francisco’s St. Francis Hotel, where Art Hickman was playing at the time).
This arrangement is 71 written measures and has an opening chorus, plenty of space for a vocalist and soloists, a soli chorus, and a D.C. into the coda. Intermediate level of difficulty—any good high school-level group ought to be able to pull this off with no problem.
The parts come as a PDF that you’ll be able to download immediately upon submission of your order.
★ Playable by Brass Quintet: Trumpet 1, Trumpet 2, French Horn 3, Trombone 4, Tuba 5, add drums (optional).
★ Playable by “Trad Jazz” Band: Trumpet 1, Trumpet or Clarinet 2, Alto or Tenor Sax 3, Trombone or Tenor Sax 4 and Tuba 5. Add drums and banjo or piano using chords symbols and roadmaps from Tuba part.
