Traditional Christmas - Out In The Hall (based on Deck the Halls) for Brass Quintet
Fred Stride is one of Canada's finest arrangers in the jazz idiom with many great works in his repertoire. Fred has arranged a winner writing Out In The Hall, a cute, jazzy version of Deck the Halls for Brass Quintet. This four minute work for advanced performers is in swing style and is fun and challenging to perform with all players getting a "kick at the can". Fred mixes up the rhythms, adds jazz harmonies and what you have is a great show-stopper.
