Quick Overview

Sacred Jazz Series-Deep River
All the pathos and joy of the spiritual "Deep River" can be heard in this jazz arrangement for trumpet, trombone, saxophones, rhythm, piano, and vocal solo. The piece begins with a slow tempo before moving into an easygoing, faster pace, then ending as it began.
