"And All That Jazz" is a sassy collection of three songs from the hit musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Chicago. First performed in 1975, Chicago, it was revived on Broadway in 1997 and has been running in London's West End since 1998. These arrangements require some sassy singing, which should, nevertheless, be undertaken with subtlety and refinement. While the arrangements work fine in a conventional 'choir' format, they are also intended to allow for some simple staging - perhaps some props or an easy dance routine.If you are looking for straightforward and rewarding repertoire for your beginner choir, then you need look no further than "Choral Basics" - the perfect series for singers of all ages. The Simple 3-part choral arrangements for soprano, alto and a combined part for men's voices make the series perfect for choirs with a dearth of males or whose male singers have unstable or changing voices. The rich array of repertoire is bound to be a hit with younger singers and the technical abilities of choirs at this level have been taken into consideration.
Straightforward and idiomatic piano accompaniments have been included and are designed to support the vocal lines, without putting pressure on staff with less developed keyboard skills. "Choral Basics" are great value for money providing a contrasted set of arrangements for the end of term concert.
