Blackbird

Blackbird

Series: Jazz Ensemble Library Format: Softcover Score & Parts Artist: The Beatles Composers: Paul McCartney, John Lennon Arranger: Mike Tomaro

Level: 4

Perhaps one of the Beatles' lesser known tunes, Blackbird remains one of their most creative and memorable. Mike Tomaro's smooth setting uses a blend of light funk along with a brief samba section to create a truly outstanding effect. The theme is stated simply in the beginning on trumpet, followed by an array of orchestrational textures and harmonies.
