Deke Sharon and Dylan Bell : A Cappella Arrangingnew

Review: At the heart of every vocal group is the music it performs. This often means writing its own arrangements of popular or traditional songs. This book is the long-awaited definitive work on the subject, wide ranging both in its scope and in its target audience - which spans beginners, music students, and community groups to professional and semi-professional performers, vocal/instrumental songwriters, composers, and producers - providing genre-specific insight on a cappella writng. The tone of the book is instructive and informative, yet conversational: it is intended to stand alongside any academic publication while remaining interesting and fun.

Deke was vocal producer on NBC's "The Sing-Off" and served as arranger, on-site music director and vocal producer for Universal's "Pitch Perfect" movie. A Cappella Arranging is a good textbook - and a "good read" - for every vocal arranger, whether amateur or professional; every vocal music classroom, and any professional recording studio. We highly recommend this book.

Deke Sharon : A Cappella R&B

Review: The number one Temptations R&B classic "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" makes for a great closer or encore, and will have your audience clapping along. The melody sits in a perfect range to be sung by any voice parts (bass can be sung an octave lower), and with 4 verses it's a great opportunity for a shared solo. A soulful tenor solo soaring over rhythmic four part harmonies brings the Marvin Gaye Motown classic "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" to life. A perfect mid-set song to show off your group's ability to groove. "September" - Just four parts, but sounds like a dozen! The melody skips from part to part as the other voices playfully recreate Earth Wind and Fire's horns, guitars, bass, keyboards... everything but the costumes! NBC's sensational singing competition The Sing-Off continued its popularity again in 2011 with an exuberant celebration of the Lionel Richie #1 hit from 1983. Mesmerizing vocal grooves combine with solos and duets to create a joyful showcase for all types of vocal ensembles!

Review: With elegant simplicity, Deke Sharon's arrangement of the Irving Berlin classic "White Christmas" gives each voice its moment to shine. The minimal homophony keeps the pleasurable chord changes coming, culminating with a satisfying cadenza progression that will close your holiday concert with class.

The sweetly sentimental Tenor 1 melody floats over and dips into a woven texture of rich jazz harmonies. Originally made famous by Kay Starr, this arrangement transforms "(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With The Bag" into a playful barbershop swing, with the melody in the tenor 2 line, and lots of right homophony.

Review: In "Heartache Tonight" rock & roll, country, and streetcorner sensibilities combine in this fun, up tempo of the Eagles classic.

The tenor solo can be shared or split between several singers. Light vocal percussion is optional. First a hit for Maurice Chevalier, then Louis Prima, then David Lee Roth, the catchy, flirtatious songs, 'Just A Gigalo/I Ain't Got Nobody' have topped the charts for three generations.

Review: Let your students express themselves with 'Drive,' the 90s "soft metal" hit by Incubus.

Deke Sharon : Swingin' A Cappella

Review: Based on the Nat "King" Cole classic big band recording, this arrangement of "Orange Colored Sky" stacks a swingin' close harmony quartet on a walking vocal bass with soprano lead (either section or solo). Plenty of syncopated rhythms and playful background lyrics make this very fun to sing. The center "instrumental" section allows you to feature a quartet of your most impressive part singers. The a cappella arrangement of "Come Fly With Me" takes the listener on a trip around the world on the wings of one of Frank Sinatra's most iconic songs. Walking bass and playful background parts support a swingin' solo. Vocal percussion optional. Sinatra would get a kick this playful version of his swing classic "I Get a Kick Out of You", featuring a tenor soloist and a "vocal string bass" scat solo break. With "Sing, Sing, Sing" you'll swear you hear an entire big band coming out of your voices in this lyricless take on Benny Goodman's classic recording. Not so easy to sing, but very impressive when all put together and a huge crowd pleaser. No solo, melodic lines move from part to part. vocal percussion is optional.

Review: "Fields of Gold" - If it wasn't written by Sting, this haunting melody could easily be a traditional English fold song.

Deke Sharon : A Cappella Jazz Classics

Review: This five-song volume includes songs your jazz ensemble will love to sing! Each of these songs is a classic on its own, and in the hands of master a cappella arranger Deke Sharon they become true vocal jazz classics. "Always" is 4-part SATB, with the melody passing among the parts. "Blue Skies" is Sop/Mezzo/Alto/Tenor/Bass, with the Alto written as "optional" (in case you need to sing it with just four parts) and includes a scat break. "Oh What A Beautiful Morning" is scored for SATB with a baritone solo - a very cool jazz waltz! Everyone gets a turn in "Route 66," both with the melody and little scat opportunities. Finally, "What'll I Do" is a gorgeous 4-part rubato ballad spiced with plaintive triplets echoing the refrain in thebackground. A real winner!

Review: Deke Sharon and Anne Raugh have become a very successful team in the world of contemporary a cappella arrangements and here is a four song collection suitable for most all male groups. Steve Miller's "Fly Like An Eagle" is a pop classic and this arrangement is fun to sing as is the Stephen Still song "Love The One You're With". Billy Joel's songs seem to be particularly suited for a cappella and "Uptown Girl" will please both performers and audiences alike.

Songlist: Fly Like An Eagle, Love The One You're With, Uptown Girl, What I Like About You

Deke Sharon / Anne Raugh : All My Loving (Collection)

Review: The Lennon and McCartney's classic "All My Loving" is arranged beautifully by Deke Sharon who also does a cool a cappella arrangement of the Rick Springfield hit "Jessie's Girl". The June Carter classic "Ring Of Fire" is lots of fun to sing as is Buddy Holiday's "That'll Be The Day". The Stevie Wonder song "I Wish" rounds out this contemprary a cappella collection that's also a real value for it's price.

Songlist: All My Loving, Jessie's Girl, Ring Of Fire, I Wish

Review: Designed to be introductory primers for high school or other beginning groups, the Contemporary A Cappella Association Songbooks nonetheless adhere to a fine musical standard (unlike some beginning arrangements, which can be watered down and unsatisfying).

In addition, a discography suggests definitive recordings of these popular songs, which can help facilitate the learning process and educate the ear. Easy to use, the CASA songbooks are an excellent resource.

Deke Sharon / Anne Raugh : Let's Hear It (Collection)

Review: More great pop hits that are becoming standards which also translate very well to a cappella treatments.

Lisa Loeb has developed a sterling reputation as a great contemporary singer/songwriter and this arrangement by Deke Sharon of her "Stay" is a true delight.
