Noten für BlasorchesterBlues in the night
Blues in the Night (My mamma done told me)This evergreen has been recorded in different tempos, grooves, and instrumentations over the years. If you do a search in iTunes, more than 200 recordings are shown. This arrangement is inspired by one of the most groovy versions recorded of this melody, done by Chicago on their record "Night and Day"To the ConductorThe introduction may seem difficult, but if you begin by rehearsing the quarter triplet background, and then proceed to the bass and drums before adding the melody, it comes together quite easily. There are great differences in volume throughout the arrangement, which a lead trumpet player may easily show off. The lower parts are not as difficult as the lead parts in each group, which makes it playable for bands with musicians at different levels. The arrangement sounds even better with an electric bass, or a tuba with a microphone, and an octawider.
