This holiday-season standard is available here for Trombones and Rhythm section as performed by Bill Watrous & Carl Fontana in their amazing recording. The general form and key of their original recording is followed.
This arrangement was written as a “Head” chart where, after the initial rundown of the melody, the form is repeated for as many soloists as are desired before a final repeat playing the tune and proceeding to the second ending. Chord changes are provided in all parts for flexibility in soloist selection.
Performance options: This is a flexible arrangement that can be played with anywhere from 2 to 4 trombonists. Parts 1 & 2 are featured as the duet throughout, but each extra part adds a few extra lines and harmonic density. The top two parts are the most involved but the other two parts will be more accessible to players with lesser experience.
Also available for Saxophone ensemble
