Organ and Choir
The ward choir director was in multiple jazz bands in his earlier years. Working with him is great fun. A lot of times, what is actually written down is minimal. He wanted to do this piece in our Sacrament service. He had written some harmony parts adapted from the original music, and asked me to do a “solo” version, which also worked quite well as an alternate harmonization. (The choir sang the verse about three times). To use this as a solo, you’ll need a second person on the organ bench to play the melody line. It works great as an alternate harmonization with no prior notification to the congregation because there are no harmony parts written in the original.
