Voicing: SATB w/piano (rhythm) accompaniment
Duration: 4:00
Level: V

As recorded by New York Voices (“NYV Sing the Songs of Paul Simon” – 1997, RCA Victor), this arrangement is for SATB vocals and rhythm section. The song is arranged as a samba, and features a female lead. In addition to extensive four way close ensemble sections, there is an a cappella section which quotes the well known “Late in the Evening” horn soli. This is a relatively advanced arrangement, which requires a mature rhythm section. With the right musicians, this can be a lot of fun for your vocal jazz ensemble.
