This programme of sophisticated choral arrangements of popular songs encompasses jazz favourites, songs from the shows and the title track – a wordless version of Glenn Miller’s immortal big band tune. Including both accompanied and a capella tracks, the numbers on this CD – blues, swing, scat, Dixieland and sophisticated close-harmony – are easy listening of the best sort and not to be missed.
All the songs on this recording are from In The Mood, edited by David Blackwell and Andrew Carter and published by Oxford University Press.
Total Time: 55’30”
Recorded in The School of St Helen and St Katharine, Abingdon, May 1995.
