God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen Big Band Jimmy Smith Hammond Organ
GOD REST YE, MERRY GENTLEMEN – Arranged for Big Band with instrument feature (Hammond Organ). This arrangement is inspired by the Jimmy Smith (Hammond Organ) recording. This is charted for 2 alto saxes, 2 tenor saxes, baritone sax, bass sax (optional), 4 trumpets, 2 trombones, bass trombone, tuba, 2 french horns (optional), tympani, rhythm (for piano, gtr, bass, drums). There are also optional baritone (bass clef C) and baritone (treble clef Bb) parts.
Though this was originally done for a Hammond Organ solo any other instrument could be featured. This arrangement has a raw and earth brass feel in keeping with the original Jimmy Smith version. This is very fun to play.
