If there is one single jazz tune known by old and young people alike all over the world, it is undoubtedly "When the saints go marching in." It has been played and recorded in every imaginable way by countless jazz stars from Louis Armstrong to all kinds of New-Orleans and Dixieland bands. Peter Kleine Schaars wrote this sparkling arrangement for symphonic band with solo vocal part. A slow introduction presents the theme and is immediately followed by a roaring swing version; then we get a quieter march tempo, but soon a break on the drums brings us again into a fine swinging tempo. This will be "top of the bill" for any concert and everybody will love it!
