The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)


Words and Music by Paul Simon

Arranged for the Illinois Music Educators Association District IV Jazz Choir

SATB (div.) a cappella jazz.   “Convertible” chart (optional rhythm section)

A “theme and variations” approach to the laid-back classic – how many “grooves” can be “Groovy?”.   A rubato, freely phrased opening leads to adventures in “Birdland” 4/4, a quick jaunt in 7/8, big-band swing, and a lazy swing.  A lot of variety in the harmonic palette as well, with a few surprising dissonances reached through logical voice leading.

Available soon!
