This arrangement of the classic swing tune is from Kerry Marsh’s “starter series” and is great for the beginning of the year or for a beginning vocal jazz ensemble. There are unison sections that will help your singers develop their sound as an ensemble and work on singing in the swing style. The jazz chords Marsh uses throughout are great for training your ensemble to sing jazz chords with success. There are fully notated instrumental parts available that are accessible if you have student instrumentalists playing in your rhythm section.
