House of the Rising Sun
arr. Paul Clark

You'll hear this arrangement a lot because your band will ask to play it again and again. After a slow and bluesy introduction featuring solo alto and piano, a new tempo is set and the high-energy rock begins. This chart doesn't just cook, it nukes! The powerful and safe ensemble writing leads to an open solo section for any instrument over basically just one chord. Then a key change from E-flat to F sets up a big finish. What began as a folk song about New Orleans becomes a hard-driving rock chart in this easy-to-play arrangement that your band and audiences will love!
