The rhythmic interplay of vocal parts frames the melody with a nice, playful “groove” that’s fun to sing as well. SATBB

(Level V) This arrangement was commissioned by its composer, Glenn Wilson, in 2009. To create this composition, Glenn morphed the source song “If I Only Had a Brain” using two jazz classics, “Giant Steps” and “Seven Steps to Heaven” to create this piece. Because of the inherent humor found in the original song and Glenn’s treatment of it, I sought to take the humor further with this arrangement. This rowdy arrangement makes extensive use of metric modulation and quotes from other songs found in the “Wizard of Oz”. 8 Brass
