  • (Walkin’) In The Garden (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    This arrangement begins with a walkin’ bass and drums. One of the strongest swing tunes in the series, it will help encourage ensembles to play together and learn to swing. There is no improvisation in this arrangement (Though you could always open up a section if your players would like to improvise). Grade 2 Double […]

  • Doxology (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    This is probably the most-loved arrangement in the series. Take 5 (The song, not the group Take 6) is a classic jazz standard in 5/4 featuring saxophone. Aaron took the Doxology, put it in 5/4 and made it a saxophone feature in the feel of Take 5. Have your players listen to the demonstration CD, […]

  • God of Grace and God of Glory (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    Probably one of my favorites in the series. Aaron decided to treat this as a Tonight Show Band/Count Basie tune. Up-tempo swing, this chart really is smokin’, sounds incredible, but is actually not as hard to play as it might sound. The rhythms all fall in the pocket and it works great. This will be […]

  • I Have Decided to Follow Jesus (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    A little bit of the old Glen Miller style of big band writing. This is the swing style that kids are loving today. The song builds and builds into a great kick section that takes you back to the 40’s. Everybody will love this arrangement. Grade 2 Double click below to hear the demonstration recording […]

  • I’m In the Lord’s Army (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    Begins with a little bit of the feel of St. Louis Blues from Glen Miller before moving into this well-known children’s chorus. March style at the top and then full-swing into a great solo section featuring the standard blues progression, this chart completely swings, from top to bottom.

  • Jesus Loves Me (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    With a little bit of the drums from Sing, Sing, Sing at the top, this is an exciting and fun arrangement of this well-known song. Moderately up-tempo, this chart really swings and is fun to play. Grade 3 Double click below to hear the demonstration recording of this arrangement: [Audio clip: view full post to […]

  • O Sacred Head Now Wounded (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    A saxophone feature that is very cool. It would be described in jazz terms as a sort of modal tune. A little bit of Miles Davis sneaks into this arrangement. This arrangement has a great feel that musicians will really enjoy and is excellent for them to learn about. Grade 2 Double click below to […]

  • Softly and Tenderly (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    Begins as a ballad featuring solo flugelhorn (trumpet) playing a written out solo. The arrangement transitions nicely into a smooth bossa nova that is easy to improvise to. Grade 2 Double click below to hear the demonstration recording of this arrangement: [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Instrumentation: Alto Sax (opt. Soprano Sax on: […]

  • Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (from Jericho Horns Volume 1)

    To add a little spice to the series, Aaron did one moderately hip funk chart. It’s got a little bit of the feel of the Saturday Night Live band, and it’s a lot of fun. There is no improvisation in this arrangement. The kids will love this chart! Grade 3 Double click below to hear […]
