On a Slow Boat to China composed by Frank Loesser. Arranged by Kirby Shaw. For Choral (SAB). Jazz Chorals. 12 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.116741).
Set in a medium swing, this jazz standard cooks from start to finish! Opening with unison vocals, it moves to two-part, then four-part jazz chords over a steady walking bass. The group scat chorus packs a punch and leads to a tasty modulation, final chorus and easy out for a super vocal jazz showcase. Available separately: SATB, SAB, SSA, ShowTrax CD. Rhythm Section parts available as a digital download (gtr, b, dm). Duration: ca. 3:10.
