R&R Chair Jazz Choirs
Looking for a mid-level swing chart? Stop looking. Kirk Marcy has done a great job of voicing this chart for SATB jazz choir. The women often split into three parts; men usually into two. The introduction of the piece is thickly textured, with unison solo-like lines to follow. A vocal solo enters on the second time through. It is written mid-range, mostly suitable for a mezzo or baritone. After the solo section, Marcy writes a fabulous scat solo section that is repeated later in the chart. The solo continues over the soli and the chart rides itself out.
