    Arrow Jazz Str Qtet feat Stradi Gofriller

    Here is my arrangement of "Summertime" for String Quartet.

    Summertime.mp3

    This is a somewhat quick and dirty rendering, as my principal preoccupation was in producing a Score and Parts for my wifes Str Qtet.

    It is by no means easy to produce Jazzy material for Str Qtet, and I have heard little that pleases me.

    If anyone can recommend some quality arrangements for this Line-up, I would be very Grateful.

    regards Joe

    that really sounds amazing. did you write the arrangement cause there are some great chord substitutions in there? its much bluesier than i'm accustomed to, which gives it a cool sound. anyway, sounds great

    Joe, this is So nice. Who doesn't like this song?--and likewise, I can't imagine someone not enjoying your fresh arrangement of it. Your wife's group will have a grand time playing this.

    I had to get out my straw hat to listen to this one
    properly, Joe.

    Fantastic arrangement, this one... getting that
    out of a quartet is quite a feat -- and some of the
    writing in this is a great deal more sophisticated than
    the first listen might lead one to suspect: more like
    a set of Jazz variations than a mere "arrangement",
    I'd say.

    I've listened through this several times, Joe --
    first-chair, top-drawer, just plain excellent!

    Best,

    When I first saw that your song was 'Summertime' (one of my all-time favourite songs) I said to myself OK, let's risk it!

    One minute in, I must say that my thoughts were that this was brilliant. Well played, arranged and improvised etc. And very unique I must say (in a very good way). My only thoughts were that this is going to be a huge challenge for the Quartet.

    Thanks for the music - Del

    Hi Keith, thanks for giving it a spin.
    It is indeed my own arrangement, substitutions and all.

    With such a well known tune, one can hopefully have a little more leeway to depart from the melody in places.

    regards Joe

    Yep it is a very popular and oft-requested hoary old standard.
    It seems to be one of those fireproof songs, that the most outré arrangements cannot spoil.

    Thanks for listening.

    aah fantastic job on this, Joe. One of the best re-compositions I've heard of this tune. It conveys a sense of wellbeing, the sound is clear and open, just the right touch of reverb. And the use of the blues inflections is very refined, I definitely love it!
