About the work: Written for the Florida International University Jazz Singers vocal jazz ensemble. Lisanne Lyons, conductor. World premier April 14, 2018 Miami, FL.
This arrangement of the traditional spiritual Down By the Riverside is anything but traditional. Inspired by the Christian McBride trio recording of this song, this vocal arrangement grooves hard. With opportunity for vocal and instrumental solos, this chart will give you interesting harmonies and some nice 4-part sax solo-like sections for your singers to enjoy.
