This is a beautiful arrangement of this classic Christmas carol. The soloist has the opportunity to really shine at the key change. If you have a trombone or trumpet player with chops, it would be ideal for them. If you don’t, the arrangement will work great with an Alto Saxophone soloist. Full Big Band Instrumentation (will work with 2/2/2 (trpt/trombone/sax)).
This is the most flexible Holiday/Christmas project you will ever find!
This arrangement features a soloist plus full big band. Here is where the unbelievable flexibility comes in!
There is a written out part for EVERY solo for trumpet, trombone, saxophone and a vocalist.
4 complete versions of this arrangement were recorded with each one featuring a different solo instrument.
(there is a trumpet, trombone, saxophone and vocalist version of the entire record)
Also, this arrangement was recorded with full big band, but you could use a 2/2/2 horn section (trumpet/sax/trombone) if you do not have access to all the players.
ANY size group. ANY soloist on ANY song. Maximum flexibility!
Alto Sax 1 & 2
Tenor Sax 1 & 2
