Sunday<br>TTBB A Cappella<br><em>arr. by Bob Martin</em> Let's Get Away From It All<br>TTBB A Cappella<br><em>arr. by Bob Martin</em> I Thought About You<br>SSAA w/Rhythm Section<br><em> by Dave Cross</em>
(Level III) A very happy version inspired by Sinatra's famous recording. The bass leads in with everyone on words right off the bat. There are fun syncopations and falls in the chorus with a half-step modulation and no pivot chord (a sort of key 'slam'). Saturday Night is the Loneliest Night of the Week quoted in the tag. This is a very fun arrangement. TTBB A Cappella

(Level III) A snappy, toe-tapping rendition. It starts right in on the chorus and cruises along to a big ending. Straight-ahead, very fun to sing, and makes a great show opener. TTBB A Cappella

Another beautiful Johnny Mercer melody arranged in a very singable a cappella setting. A short solo with choir backgrounds sets up a beautiful and sensitive ending. SATB a cappella.

(Level 5) This tune features alto solo with choir back up. Choir parts are not too difficult but give the effect of jazz band shouts. There is also a section for solos (piano or voice) immediately followed by the ensemble singing a chorus of How High the Moon and then back into solo and ensemble back up. SSATBB with rhythm section.

Give Me The Simple Life<br>SSAA w/Rhythm Section<br><em>arr. by Dave Cross</em> I've Never Been in Love Before<br>SATB w/Rhythm Section<em>arr. by Sonja Ramirez Sarr</em> Nancy with the Laughing Face<br>SATB w/Rhythm Section<em>arr. by Sonja Ramirez Sarr</em>
Sung either soli or solo, the front section really sets up this chart for success. A written-out bass solo leads into an a cappella SSAA quartet feature that is a real gas! Back to the bridge, on through a key change to the classic Basie "Splanky" ending. Suitable for contest or concert. SSAA with written out parts for piano and bass and drums.

Performing this song, which moves between 4 and 6 parts, brings excitement to both the vocalists and the rhythm section. It can be done as a medium swing or a hard shuffle. The tune starts with an attention getting intro that tastefully moves into a two feel. Then comes the driving swing. There is an opportunity for soloists to shine, or there is the option to skip the solo section. It has a surprising 3/4 section in the middle. Moving back into 4/4, the ending is energizing. SATB with rhythm section. Recorded on Soundsation's 1996 CD Live and Kickin'.

(Level 3) An SATB ballad with rhythm section inspired by the Ray Brown Trio from their Three Dimensional CD. There are opportunities for your drummer to show off his/her brush work and for the pianist to dig into the keys. There is a written out piano intro and chord changes thereafter for the rhythm section.

(Level III) Really up-tempo version of this Cole Porter classic with lots of room for the top voice soprano to solo. Open spot for an instrumental solo. Mostly group backgrounds for the female solo, except all singers are in full for the ending. SATBB w/ Rhythm

(Level 4) This 50's classic features all the things that have made Kirby Shaw a leader in vocal jazz education--fresh melodic/rhythmic treatment, varied choral textures, a hip, written-out solo vocalese, stylistically authentic scat syllables, a hot shout chorus and written-out rhythm section parts that work! Commissioned by Fairview High School Excalibur, Boulder, Colorado, this is a great opener for concerts and festivals! S(S)ATB with rhythm section.

(Level 4) This arrangement is a rendition of the version made famous by Bobby Darin. The big band backgrounds to the soli line help to make this a swingin' chart. It has an optional Jaws and/or Duke Ellington intro. Each verse of the chart changes key ascending by semi-tones increasing with intensity into heavy swing. The last three verses feature vocal solos with high energy backgrounds. This chart is a proven winner and is guaranteed to be a great closer to any program. A real crowd pleaser.

That Old Black Magic<br>SATB w/Rhythm Section, Level IV<br><em>arr. by Kirby Shaw</em> All or Nothing At All<br>SSATB w/Rhythm Section, Level III<br><em>arr. by Cathy Jensen-Hole</em> Come Fly With Me<br>SATB w/Big Band< Level III<br><em> by Gregory W. Yasinitsky</em>
This arrangement has been a part of many high school/college festival-winning programs! In a smokin' Latin rock tempo this truly is a earth scorcher !...sassy lyrical treatment, the wildest vocal stack ever written in the middle, a brief breakout into swing and lots of room for a creative drummer. You'll not find a hotter concert-closer than this! SATB with rhythm section.

(Level III) This exciting up-tempo chart featuring the tenor and bass sections of the choir would be a great opener or closer for a program. The contrapuntal lines of the unison men and unison women are balanced in the bridge with the tenor section accompanied by the rest of the ensemble. The chart contains some interesting 5-part harmony at the end of the form. SSATB w/ rhythm section

(Level 3) This arrangement is scored for vocal jazz ensemble (SATB) and Big Band (8-10 brass), but is also performable by vocal jazz ensemble with only rhythm section accompaniment. This medium swinger was arranged especially for the 1993-94 Washington State University Vocal Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Big Band. The chart features strong ensemble tutti figures for the singers and contrapuntal writing for the bridge of the tune. There is a short ensemble statement for the band and the chart builds to a strong finish. An ideal opener.

(Level 4) This arrangement is scored for vocal jazz ensemble (SATB) and big band (8-10 brass), but it is also performable by vocal jazz ensemble with only rhythm section accompaniment. This exciting, up-tempo swinger was arranged especially for the 1992-93 Washington State University Vocal Jazz Ensemble and the Jazz Big Band and was performed at the '93 IAJE Conference in San Antonio. This chart features hip changes, extended phrases, a cookin' ensemble for the singers, roaring big band figures and a short solo for first trombone. A great closer!
