Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming by Traditional. Arranged by Bob Curnow. For jazz ensemble (5-4-4-3). Concert Ballad. Grade 4. Score and parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-1069).
With a nod to the wonderful David Maddux arrangement written for First Call, Bob has created a gorgeous version for big band. Every jazz band needs Christmas charts to perform. This one is beautiful in its simplicity and overall effect. The chart starts quietly and gradually builds to a dramatic climax followed by a quiet and sonorous ending. There are no solos. Make sure you check this one out on Sierra Music's website. 5-4-4-3.
