This advanced level chart reinterprets this traditional Christmas carol into a phat, swinging, grooving piece (with hints of the New Orleans snare feel in the drums, for good measure). Trumpet 1, Tenor Saxes and Trombone 1 have optional lower notes if players struggle with the extreme upper register. Solo section features Tenor 1 and Guitar (or piano).
Instrumentation: Standard Big Band lineup: 2 alto saxophones, 2 tenor saxophones, baritone saxophone, 4 trumpets in B flat, 3 tenor trombones, bass trombone, guitar, piano, bass, drums.
Duration: 6 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Trumpet 1 needs high concert F above the stave, Trombone 1 needs high C above middle C.
Dedication note: Dedicated to James Mustafa
Commission note: Commissioned by Melbourne Composers Big Band.
