Music of ACCENT
Arranged by James Rose
This is an arrangement demo of James Rose's arrangement of the traditional spiritual "Good News", as performed by the international a cappella group Accent.
Borrowing the harmonic and grooving essence of Take 6 for this arrangement, James Rose sets the traditional spiritual "Good News" with joy and a number of great musical surprises, offering advanced-level vocal groups the opportunity to really dig into solid jazz harmony and wow their audiences. Brief bass vocalist solos on the verses are followed by a vamping section with lyric improv to showcase singers with soul and melismatic chops. Notated for mixed vocal jazz ensemble.
Lowest regularly occurring bass notes is D, and the lower notes written (as low as B in a couple spots) are singable up an octave to good effect if necessary.
