Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Bossa Nova Rock Ballad - Medium

Publisher: Walrus Music Publishing

This quirky 4/4 lullaby by Debussy is one of six movements from "Children's Corner" for solo piano. "Jimbo" was a misspelling of "Jumbo" which was a toy elephant owned by Debussy's daughter. The lullaby is for Jumbo the elephant doll. Unlike many of his piano works, this one lays well in its original tessitura and key of Bb for jazz band instrumentation. It is a medium tempo bossa rock ballad with written and improvised solos for trombone 1. The harmonization follows Debussy's own very forward thinking, as its based on fourths, fifths and seconds, a technique now know as ambichord harmonization. Lots of rich ensemble work interspersed with long melodic lines make for a lovely adaptation of this impressionistic gem. 4:00 minutes
