This clever funky arrangement of The Battle Hymn Of The Republic features every section of the ensemble in some capacity. The sixteenth note syncopations and exciting inter-section dialogues will really tighten up a band and get them thinking and listening together. The 3rd sax (alto or tenor) has a solo on piccolo or flute that can be adapted to saxophone if necessary. The fourth sax (tenor) has a solo as well. Originally written for and recorded by the Woody Herman Orchestra.
JOHN ODDO (b. 1953) received his musical training from the famed Eastman School of Music and later wrote for and played piano in Woody Herman's Herd in the 1980s. Since leaving the Herd, John has been Rosemary Clooney's accompanist and music director for many years.
