  • 01 ‘Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus-Retro Hymns

    Our inspiration for the feel/groove of this song comes from mixing a couple things. There’s a little bit of ‘Brick House’ by The Commodores and a little bit of ‘I Wish’ by Stevie Wonder. This is one of the easier arrangements in the series. There is one 12 bar ad lib solo, but we provide […]

  • 02 All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name-Retro Hymns

    Our inspiration for the feel/groove of this song comes is very loosely based on Michael Jackson’s ‘Working Day and Night’. It also has a little bit of a nod to Tower of Power. This is a pretty straight forward, slightly bluesy rhythm section with some FUNKY horns on top. This is one of those ‘showcase’ […]

  • 03 Amazing Grace-Retro Hymns

    Our inspiration for the feel/groove of this song is Stevie Wonder’s classic ‘Superstition’. We’re not using his melody or lyrics, mind you. We’re just using the groove/feel of his song to help come up with a cool, funky way of playing Amazing Grace. This version of Amazing Grace has got more of a minor feel. […]

  • 04 Crown Him With Many Crowns-Retro Hymns

    Our inspiration for the feel/groove of this song is Kool and the Gang’s huge hit ‘Celebration’. If you like the opening to Saturday Night Live, the feel of this one is for you also! This arrangement will not be extremely difficult to pull together AND the guys will love playing it. Can’t ask for anything […]

  • 05 Do Lord-Retro Hymns

    Bo Diddley. Straight Up! I was in 7th grade and just started playing trumpet. Our family went over to New Orleans and I heard a big band play in Jackson Square. I was hooked. This is fun and funky and 110% New Orleans/Bo Diddley groove. This arrangement is just fun, pure and simple. The Bo […]

  • 06 Fairest Lord Jesus-Retro Hymns

    A throwback to the ballads of the late 70s/early80s, this is a simple, relaxed arrangement of Fairest Lord Jesus. This arrangement is simple to play but builds powerfully to the last chorus. If you’re looking for an opportunity for your sax player to shine, this is it! (Don’t worry, we’ve written out a solo for […]

  • 07 I Stand Amazed In the Presence-Retro Hymns

    I’m a trumpet player. I grew up playing trumpet (born in 1970). OBVIOUSLY, Chicago had a tremendous impact on my trumpet playing. I had to throw 1 song in this series that had a ‘Chicago’ type sound. I remember singing the horn lick in my head and I got so excited because I couldn’t wait […]

  • 08 Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee-Retro Hymns

    I think the first chart I played in jazz band in high school was In the Stone. It’s the quintessential Earth, Wind and Fire song. Pure Classic. Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee is a pure classic hymn all the way back to Mr. Beethoven. I thought it would be cool to create an arrangement of […]
