As an entrepreneur, you often vividly recall moments when you stepped out believing something would work. For me, the Jericho Horns was one of those projects. It was 1999 and I was about to marry Dana. I had felt that there were enough churches out there that were looking for praise band/big band music in a jazz style and if I wrote it, they would buy it.
<Insert ‘Field of Dreams’ analogy here>
I was right and with the tremendous response with the praise band version (Volume 1), I decided to do Volume 2 with full big band but it could work with a small praise band and any size group in between. At that point, Brentwood Benson offered to buy the series from us and it really made great sense for us. They had the ability and desire to help reach many more churches than we could have at the time and they did just that. I remember the call from Johnathan Crumpton over at BB when he said, “Let’s do a Christmas version!” No twisting my arm there. I loved that idea.
Fast forward to today and I am happy to announce that we are now able to sell the Jericho Horns series here at AnderKamp Music as DOWNLOADABLE FILES!
If you are looking for praise band or big band or anything in between, this is the series for you!
You can listen to audio samples of all the arrangements and you can download the arrangements as soon as you place your order. You can be swinging out with a big band this Wednesday night!
Just for fun, I’ve put up the original cover (and back cover) of the Jericho Horns Volume 1 CD below that a friend of a friend illustrated for me back in 1999.
