Charleston Alley by Edgar M. Sampson and Jon Hendricks. Arranged by Darmon Meader. For Choral. Choral. Shawnee Press. Secular, Jazz/Pop. CD only. Shawnee Press #CD0409. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35003242).
Darmon Meader's arrangement of Charleston Alley pays tribute to Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, as well as Charlie Barnet, while expanding the voicings, and also placing the song in a much more “SATB-friendly” key. This arrangement is a great introduction to the classic vocalese style of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, and will work well for most medium to advanced vocal jazz groups.
