Now Available - Time After Time (the standard, not Cyndi Lauper, silly)

Happy to announce a new Starter Series (Level 2) samba chart on "Time After Time", just now added to the catalog. It's available in two voicings; SATB and SAB, and has notated piano and bass parts. Accessible for your students and a good opener for a set, with a happy, uplifting feel, some solo space, and a cool interlude section with some additive figures.

Now Available - Bobby McFerrin's Meditative "Common Threads"

This arrangement can be considered a great option for a yraditional choir/vocal jazz crossover! Beautiful and meditative, this wordless Bobby McFerrin song from his album "Medicine Music" is easy to sing, with more melodic responsibility on the soprano section than the rest of the ensemble. Vibes add a nice color on this piece but aren't completely necessary, and a synth using a warm pad patch is preferable when possible, but acoustic piano would serve as a good substitute. A soloist adds colors to the steady and flowing soundscape.

Now Available: John Legend's "All of Me" - Reharmed Acappella

All of Me - SSATBaB A Cappella - Level 5 

This arrangement of John Legend's massive hit tune is an a cappella harmonic adventure, pulling no punches with deep (mostly) six-part reharmonization in an unusual, mostly homophonic choral setting. For advanced groups needing a challenge, this can be a surprising addition to your set list, looking fairly innocuous on your program ("Oh, look, honey, it's that pretty John Legend tune that we heard way too much of a couple years ago...") but packing an ear-punch. There's heart in this arrangement, to be sure, and Julia Dollison is a master of bringing that out on the demo, but this is written inspired by the twisted arranging chops of Jacob Collier and Dirty Loops, and borrows also from the approach of songs like "Hide and Seek" and "Hymn of Axciom".
