Okay, here's the deal. Folks at my church have told me they want to here more of my horn playing in a solo situation. So, I decided to orchestrate church melodies in GPO, record them to CD, and have them accompany me on the horn. Easy enough, right?
WRONG!!! Church melodies are so simplistic I'm going out of my head! So, can any of you help me, here? The following is a link to "Jesus Loves Me" by William M Bradbury, orchestrated by me.
I think I'm going to scrap this piece at 1:03 and do a complete re-write. The link is not the completed work, as I got disgusted with it and stopped. Just let me know what you guys think. The re-write, if I do it, will probably keep with the "deep south" feeling I had for the first minute. BTW, this piece should not be more than 2:30 in length (another problem I'm having, since my stuff is usally at least 5 minutes in length)!
Thanks for any comments.
