Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Rock - Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

A Soul vocal take on Joe Zawinul's "Mercy Mercy Mercy," performed with style by Nancy Wilson. The emotions behind this vocal are pure Soul - a mix of pleading, despair, hope and frustration. The arrangement is a perfect showcase for a singer who likes to really get their voice across, and the chart has a nice cameo vocal cadenza flourish at the finish. For the instrumentalists, this is an easy blow, yet the whole thing works wonderfully well. This arrangement would suit bands of all levels of ability, providing that you have a strong singer. The vocal key is C and the vocal range in the main tune is only just over the octave, though Nancy Wilson's interpretation takes her into two-octave range territory. There are no sax doubles.
