Sung either soli or solo, the front section of 'Give Me the Simple Life' really sets up this chart for success. A written-out bass solo leads into an a cappella SSAA quartet feature that is 'a real gas!' Back to the bridge, on through a key change to the classic Basie "Splanky" ending. Suitable for contest or concert. Freytag's latin version of 'Summertime' will be fun for the singers and the audience. 'Playrooms' is an a cappella jazz waltz, that will set a gentle tone in your program. The text, written by Jackie Farrell, describes the beauty of young children and of the simple joys often forgotten by adults. 'Queen of Hearts' is a playful, easy to sing yet very full sounding version of this repeated pop and country top ten hit. The lead moves from part to part, giving the upper three parts each a chance to sing the melody. The alto 2 "bass line" features plenty of lyrics and countermelodies as well. 'I Remember Clifford,' a classic Benny Golson tune, is set here for female voices and a torch-style soloist. The tribute to jazz great and trumpet player, Clifford Brown, has remained a jazz standard since first introduced. The lush harmonies provide a beautiful setting for Golson's tribute. The soloist has freedom to sing the line as written or develop her own solo line.
