St. Louis Blues arranged by Luther Henderson and Michael Brown. For Brass, Concert Band (Score & Parts). Score and full set of parts.. Canadian Brass Concert Band. Grade 4. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.8724038).
Based on the famous Canadian Brass version by master arranger Luther Henderson, here is a wonderful adaptation for concert band by Michael Brown. Opening with a bluesy medium swing feel, the tuba section is featured on the melody along with a small group of players. Mid-way through the arrangement, the style changes to an up-tempo Dixieland style with the melody cleverly traded between various sections of the band. This rousing number is sure to be a favorite.
