The Song Is You (SSATB - L3.5)



Julia Dollison's 1996 samba arrangement of the Kern/Hammerstein standard is given a serious re-working here, and emerges fresh and exciting, with a taste of contemporary reharmonization added, soli section reinvented, solo backgrounds added and a male/female duet is added for texture contrast and the rhythm section parts have been fully written out. The samba groove feels greats on this chart, and the lyric is carefully set to make it accessible and highly effective for solid school groups.

Notated piano, notated bass, drums

Originally written for University of Miami (1996), Major revision in 2016
