Various Arrangers : Jazz/Pop Series Vol. 3 : SATB : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Jazz/Pop Series Vol. 3

'I Hold Your Hand In Mine' is a hilarious novelty song by famed satirist/songwriter, Tom Lehrer, gets a pseudo-sophisticated arrangement here, resulting in a subtle but very witty comic effect! Great change-of-pace in a jazz vocal program! A few words can be changed if needed. "I Don't Know Why I Do' is a hot ballad of the 40's in block harmonies. The tempo is medium. Jeremy Landig's arrangement of 'Pure Imagination' is five parts and is inspired by the sound of the Real Group. "Crunch" chords and interesting turns of harmony abound, making this a real showoff piece. Set mostly in a rubato ballad style, it shifts dramatically and unexpectedly between keys in the first section. The bridge leads into a sublime soli section bringing the melody back in a slow swing reminiscent of Lil Darlin' but in 7/4! The bridge returns briefly (this time in a Take 6-influenced swing) before the arrangement winds to a close in the original ballad feel. Whitney Houston made Dolly Parton's 'I Will Always Love You' the longest running #1 hit in the country's history, and this arrangement is true to her legendary version: opening simply with the trademark soprano soloist alone, adding a rich pulsing texture after the first verse and building gradually to a chilling climax.

Songlist: I Don't Know Why (I Just Do), I Hold Your Hand In Mine, I Don't Know Why (I Just Do), Pure Imagination, I Will Always Love You

Yumiko Matsuoka : Collection Volume 2 : Mixed 5-8 Parts : Sheet Music

Yumiko Matsuoka : Collection Volume 2

The Lennon-McCartney classic "Eleanor Rigby" retains some of the flavor of the original Beatles' arrangement intact by giving the background vocals a string-like texture in the opening section. It then goes through a couple of key changes and gives different parts an opportunity to sing the melody, while the background supports with strong harmony and interesting counterlines. Arranged for a cappella quintet Vox One, the classic "Danny Boy" song showcases a soprano solo. In the middle section, the alto and tenor parts weave a line reminiscent of a brook in a green field of Ireland. Lush, complex harmony and a dramatic build-up reward both the singes and the audience. Recorded on Vox One's, Chameleon. The national anthem is treated here with solemn but inspirational sound. The rich harmony, without going too far away from the original, builds to a climax with contrapuntal lines that make it interesting for the singers. Written for the New York-based group the Western Wind, Yumiko's arrangement of 'Where Is Love?' opens with a mezzo/alto feature backed by flowing lines reminiscent of a small string ensemble. After the interlude, the melody is passed onto different parts with a surprise ending that involves a couple of tonality changes. Written for a cappella quintet Vox One's comeback album of the same title, 'Pure Imagination' features a soprano solo with the background vocals that re-creates the dreamy world of Willy Wonk'a Chocolate Factory. Come and explore the harmony and texture that builds up to a fantastic climax. It will make you want to watch and savor the movie once again.
