Brass Quintet

Down By the Riverside
traditional spiritual
arr. Charlie Peterson
Price: $10

Transposed parts can be ordered.

This arrangement is based on the Dixieland style 1950s recording by Louis Armstrong.  A slow rubato intro gives way to a bright & happy rendition of this classic spiritual.  Armstrong's vocal melody is covered by the trombone.  A brief slow interlude like the intro again accelerandos back into the tune followed by a solo section.  A transcription of Armstrong's solo (mostly embellished melody) is included as well as some sample ad lib trombone doodling.
