VOCAL CHART

Vocal chart with optional instrumental solos.
After a rubato introduction, this song makes you feel like dancing as this infectious swing shuffle feel drives along. Plenty of punchy lines for the front line.  This is one Christmas song that can be played anytime throughout the year.  It is a must for your library.  If playing as an instrumental, the alto or tenor sax 8va would work best.  Suits FEMALE alto vocal range - Key 'G'

An up tempo swing chart, but can be taken slower and will work just as well. A lot of free flowing lines from the saxes, complimented with punchy brass.  Short solo for trombone & piano.  If played as an instrumental solo, all of the solo parts will work well.

O HOLY NIGHT

Level 3+

 

 

VOCAL

$25+GST PDF

Vocal chart with optional instrumental solos.
This version starts with a traditional approach from the vocalist with the band playing a bluesy 12/8 feel - building into a fast 3/4 jazz feel. This chart really cooks with plenty of punch from the band. Ed Wilson is playing the vocal line on trombone - this is a good example of how the optional instrumental solo parts can work if you don't have a vocalist.  Range wise, tenor or alto sax will suit best if you don't have a vocalist.
