Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys - for Small Big Band (7 Horns & Rhythm Section) Featured

This take on the mid-60’s Beach Boys classic gives an instrumental ensemble a chance to perform “Good Vibrations” while observing its original key and form. The ending (as well as other moving lines) takes its cue from the cover version as done by Wilson Phillips.

There are plenty of texture changes around: Trumpet solos at the beginning, ensemble saxophones, independent moving counter lines, synth moodiness, and fun full ensemble shouts! Your keyboardist should have the freedom to incorporate creative patches to emulate the original recording.

Other than a couple of things that may not be fully idiomatic (the triplet figures in the keys as well as a little bit for the Bari Sax), these remain fairly unchallenging and most of this arrangement should be well within the grasp of younger ensembles as long as they are reminded to keep a close eye on the key signature!
