Round Midnight - Arr. Gene Puerling


SAATBB Vocal Jazz Ensemble

This haunting arrangement of Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight” was penned in 1975 for The Singers Unlimited with vocals arranged by Gene Puerling and instrumental parts by Clare Fischer. It was recorded on their album A Special Blend (and contained in the Magic Voices box set). This is NOT a transcription, but an authentic edition created from the handwritten manuscripts of Gene Puerling and Clare Fischer. The vocal parts divide into up to eight parts at times (six ensemble parts and a simultaneous duet), plus piano, guitar, bass, drums, flute, alto flute and Bb clarinet. (Note to ensemble directors: don’t let the horn parts scare you off – they are only present during the introduction and ending and can be eliminated or replaced!) (Level V)
