Just about everyone has heard the melody to Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho, right? Arranger Mike Lewis took this traditional melody and scored it for the young band. With a rubato sax and piano intro, Mike moves his chart right into an easy swing feel. There are no individual improvised solos, just ensemble with some section work, with some nice parts for the trombones. Optional parts are included but this chart will sound full with reduced instrumentation. Easy ranges, accessible rhythms and the rubato ending can be as dramatic as you like. A very nice chart.
