Music of ACCENT
Arranged by Simon Åkesson
This is an arrangement demo of Simon Åkesson's arrangement of his composition (with lyrics by Petter Sandström) "Song For Gene", as performed by the international a cappella group Accent.
This touching a cappella original composition is a tribute to none other than the most important figure in the history of vocal jazz music, the great Gene Puerling. In the spirit of Puerling, the harmony is lush and adventuresome with careful orchestration and texture changes as just the right moments.
Lowest bass note that would be difficult to reassign up an octave is a D-flat in the second half of the song, and a single later low C is singable up an octave to good effect if necessary.
