March 23, 2014 at 1:40 pm #438724HELP! I’ve spent a ton of time in every search engine, publisher website, etc. I’m relatively new to this ‘theme’Can anyone suggest a SECULAR up tempo or ballad is good, S.A.T.B. chart (or 3 or 2 part mixed voices for an ADULT COMMUNITY VOCAL JAZZ GROUP of good musician singers to perform for a Father’s Day benefit gig.please send me your suggestions to email@example.comTHANKS!March 24, 2014 at 1:44 am #438764
A cappella? Accompanied? Piano only, or piano/bass/drums, or larger ensemble?
(Also, when is Father’s Day in your country? Here in Australia it’s in September, but I’m getting a feeling you need it earlier than that.)March 24, 2014 at 9:44 am #438780
Thomas H. ShellenbergerParticipantWhile not Father’s Day specific, may I recommend to you a beautiful a cappella arr. of the Jule Styne’sMAKE SOMEONE HAPPY? Written for S.A.B. voices(with occasional div. for tenors) – some solos – of medium difficulty(if even that!) – Arr. by Matt Falker – Sound Music Publications -SMP08-032. Upon reading your request this immediately came to mind – don’t know why. You can hear it at smpjazz.comGood luck!tMarch 24, 2014 at 1:37 pm #438806
Daniel GregermanParticipantI would suggest a great ballad of either Like Someone In Love or Smile. Both are arranged by Steve Zegree and pubolished by Hal Leonard. As a dad I used to sing Like Someone In Love to may daughter to help her fall asleep when she was a baby.March 24, 2014 at 1:50 pm #438807We are A SMALL jazz vocal group of mixed voices: 7 adult voices: 2 sopranos; 2 altos’ 1 tenor; 2 bass; Community adult (all over 40 yrs old) musician singers!.preference would be for a cappella; or with show trax; for portablity WE GO TO THE RETIRMENT HOMES to do our shows..Father’s day is on June 15th (Sunday) …THANKS!March 24, 2014 at 1:52 pm #438808You are right this is a BEAUTFUL ARRANGEMENT & I think we would be up to performing this… it’s right up our ‘path’… but.. as you said, it’s not really geared to Father’s day.. we could ‘speak around it’..Do you know: how many copies come with the $65 fee? any idea?THANKS!March 24, 2014 at 8:01 pm #438826
Anything arranged by Kirby Shaw would work. You can find his arrangements in multiple voicings. With tracks …He has many acappella as well. Try jw pepper. There are usually recordings to listen to on the website.March 25, 2014 at 1:05 pm #438886
Thomas H. ShellenbergerParticipantHello:With SMP your $65 allows you to make as many copies as you like…but you are held responsible for the copies you make. You can’t loan them to anyone…they are yours alone. Otherwise it would be a violation of copyright law.This is contractual…which you must agree to. Check out the SMP policies on their website: www.smpjazz.comGood luck…tMarch 26, 2014 at 8:34 am #438937
Tina SchwahnParticipantWanting Memories by Yasaye M. Barnwell of Sweet Honey in the Rock. http://www.jwpepper.com/3225760.item#.UzLWDfldV8E There is also a great video about the piece at http://youtu.be/EpiZ1bpGVVA. It’s not exactly uptempo, but it’s a great song.
