I have always had a liking for the Gershwin brother’s song “A Foggy Day”; something about the melody, the chords and the lyrics make me feel like it’s the perfect, light-hearted jazz standard. Now I have made an arrangement of this song, for Big Band and a male vocalist, that from today is available in the shop.
My version is a little uptempo, with the song alternating between a pedal ostinato and the regular chords, where I try to illustrate a drizzly, deep grey, murky and foggy London morning, which unexpectedly ends with the sun breaking through – maybe both literally and figuratively. This chart could work as a dance chart, and I hope others will find that I have made a stimulating and challenging arrangement.
There will also be a Summer Sale between the 1:st of June and 31:st of August. Because the pandemic has had such a devastating impact on the Big Band culture, I’ve decided to keep the greater discounts this year too. Prices will therefore be reduced by 30% on all compositions, and 25% on all arrangements. Take the opportunity to buy great sounding, fun and stimulating and unique charts at good prices!
Stay safe everybody! I hope we can put an end to the pandemic very soon.
