Away in a Manger
arr. Terry White
- Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
This arrangement is a beautiful and sensitive treatment of this superb Christmas classic. In a medium jazz waltz style, it begins with a mysterious alto 1 melody, then transitions to the full ensemble, followed by a written or ad lib tenor sax solo. Swinging slightly harder, the chart then modulates into the final ensemble shout section. The lead trumpet range is to written G on top of the staff and it's playable with optional expanded instrumentation. Sweet, tasteful, hip, yet reverent, this is perfect change of pace holiday programming. Highly recommended!
