And so another round of scoring out begins!
On Saturday 17th October we have our next Sing with Sassparella Bath-uk event. Last time it was ‘Motown- this time, it will be the music of Paul Simon (and Art Garfunkel)… but mainly Paul Simon, as he was the principle writer.
It’s proving to be a bit of an epic (mapping harmonies, transposing to suit female voices and four part vocal arrangements, but coming on nicely:
Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes
50 Ways to leave Your Lover
Mother and Child Reunion
Call Me Al and of course
Bridge Over Troubled Water
People signing up already! Great stuff!
Very pleased to announce that local jazzman (and another ex-Bristol School Leader) Mike Collins will be joining us on keyboards… gives me a chance to roll out the fretless bass so that I can enjoy myself on the Graceland tracks (-:
Mike’s just released an album with his trio/quartet: well worth a listen http://mikecollins.bandcamp.com/album/and-suddenly-evening
