Bridge over Troubled Water
Words and music by Paul Simon / arr. Paul Baker
Young Jazz Ensemble
2 (Medium Easy)
A rock-ballad at 88 BPM, this well-known tune will please. The melody is stated by trumpet 2 and tenor sax, there are no improvised solos, and trumpet 1 range is to written G on top of the staff. This chart also has great dynamic contrasts and a great vamp toward the end. Optional parts include vibes. A big yes!
