Rousing, joyful arrangements!

Jazzy settings of best loved hymns invite spirited worship and joyous celebration. Do you know jazz musicians who would welcome an opportunity to perform on Sunday morning? Does your church contain the hidden talents of musicians who played in high school or college jazz bands? These toe-tapping arrangements are designed to accommodate seasoned jazz players as well as less experienced improvisers. Parts include keyboard, bass, drums, optional guitar and two melodic instruments (trumpet and sax are suggested). Vocal parts are also provided for solo or group singing.
