"A Super Novelty Number For Your Brass
This is a
tremendous Brass Quintet arrangement of the old sea shanty, "What Shall We
Do With The Drunken Sailor?"
This arrangement has
sections that provide a great exercise to
develop double tonguing skills for those who need this, while
giving a great musical experience at the same time.
The arrangement also has some
excellent (but short) solos for
various instruments. These solos are usually only a measure or
so in length. This is ideal for players who are not totally
confident in their solo ability but would like to become more so.
There are fascinating harmonies
and interesting changes of tempo. There is even a
section that sounds like the sailor stopped off in Spanish
is a Grade 3 piece if you have good double-tonguing skills.
