This chart was commissioned by Pacific Standard Time (CSU Long Beach) to celebrate the life of vocalist and creative force Al Jarreau. Al composed this song and performed it quite a bit live, although it is not one of more well known songs (view a live performance on YouTube). Set in a catchy 6/8 feel, the song features Al’s trademark vocal patter over an adventurous harmonic progression. This arrangement gives an opportunity for your talented tenor to shine, and the chorus features a trio over top of the full choir. There is an open section for soloing, and a fun surprise at the end!
Vocal range: Guys A2 – Ab4 (opt low D2), Ladies F3 – G5 (optional A5/E6). Included: vocal score, piano part, bass part, rhythm score, solo/trio vocal part.
Demo: Live performance by Pacific Standard Time from CSU Long Beach (Christine Guter, director) – as premiered on the main stage of the 2018 JEN Conference.
