Bette Midler’s fun and quirky rendition of this Christmas ditty is available here as a vocal feature with Brass Quintet and Rhythm Section accompaniment. It follows her recording in key (D Major) and in form.
Brass quintet parts emulate the big band ensemble hits, providing a similar sound but with a smaller complement of players. The first trumpet part remains similar to the big band lead trumpet part rangewise. There is a small interlude that allows for a short improvised solo; chord changes are provided with all of the brass parts to feature your best soloist.
The Rhythm/Lead part works as a condensed part that gives the chord changes and general hits for rhythm players and/or conductor, but individual parts are provided for all. The Guitar and Bass parts still use slashes but the Piano part offers a fully notated option. The Percussion part (sleigh bells) is optional.
This song is always a great crowd pleaser and is a great showoff tune for your female vocalist!
