Anders Edenroth : Arrangements of The Real Group Vol 3 : Mixed 5-8 Parts : Sheet Music

Anders Edenroth : Arrangements of The Real Group Vol 3

With its catchy melody, exciting vocal percussion and clever lyrics, "Prime Time Blues" is simply awesome, and is the feature track on The Real Group's most recent album. Excellent for advanced high school or college vocal jazz groups. Written as a jazz original for The Real Group, "Friendship" works just as well for larger choirs of high school level and beyond. The song tells about "Destiny," the ship of your life's journey, with friendship as the central theme. With a beautiful melody line and cool background rhythms, it will make a great program addition. "Pass Me The Jazz" - This up-tempo vocal jazz piece written for The Real Group features sections of scat singing. Left intentionally without dynamic markings, it is meant to get its "color" from the performers. "All Creatures of our God and King" - Combining one of our best-loved hymns with rhythmic vocal jazz background makes this a stunning crossover work to be enjoyed by both singers and audience. The eight-part arrangement will work very well even with a smaller, but strong group of singers. A work that will surely bring light and joy to your program! Enjoy!

Songlist: Prime Time Blues, Friendship, Pass Me The Jazz, All Creatures of our God and King

The Real Group : The Middle Of Life : 00  1 CD

The Real Group : The Middle Of Life

The A Cappella world is abuzz with the good news: the release of "The Middle of Life," The Real Group's much-anticipated new CD. Even better, "Life" is all new, all originals, all studio and all in English! Anders Edenroth writes the music and lyrics to "Prime Time Blues," a funky, saucy romp that features the title phrase and some state-of-the-art vocal percussion and mock horns, his "Words" is a lyrical, rhythmic masterpiece, "Friendship" has Anders singing a mellow, soaring lead, and his "The Grass Grows Greener" is an instant jazz standard with his voice adding a muted, precise tone. Peder Karlsson writes the understated, bluesy "Mister Father," his "Are You Coming To Me" is a salsa-flavored fiesta tune featuring Katarina on lead, "A Quiet Song" features Peder's slow, bluesy voice, and "Gota," featuring Peder and Katarina, has a simple, meandering melody that builds in intensity to symphonic proportions. Margareta Jalkeus writes "Spring Is Coming" and has a nice, soaring solo riff that becomes a dreamy scat sequence, and has a moody, mysterious lead on her "My Hidden World." Katarina Henryson writes "I Tried," shares writing credits with Anders on the ironic, pop-ish "A Perfect Life," and her bluenote alto on her "Given" is sweetly profound. So much talent here - we find ourselves listening to this CD again and again to appreciate just how far the a cappella envelope has been pushed, and comparing the genius and musical focus of the individual composers. Simply put, "The Middle of Life" is a masterpiece, an unexpected gift from Sweden to be unwrapped and savored on many levels!

Songlist: Prime Time Blues, Mister Father, Words, Spring Is Coming, I Tried, Friendship, Are You Coming To Me?, The Grass Grows Greener, My Hidden World, A Perfect Life, A Quiet Song, Given, Gota
