Arranged in a Gospel style complete with all the frills including bluesy right–hand embellishments, big left-hand octave runs, sudden stops, and dramatic dynamics.
Originally part of a Winter Hymns collection, now available as a single sheet.
Musical Map: Right from the start, they will know this isn't a traditional Christmas instrumental. A fully notated jazz solo will have them wondering whether you are improvising. Then it's back to the melody as it modulates from Bb major to G Major. But it's short lived with the energy lifting once more to C major… before winding down to what seems will be a predictable ending. But wait, a deceptive ending cadence holds back that final tonic chord just a bit longer.
Don't be surprised to find your listeners unconsciously moving to the deliciously irresistible "down home" groove.
