Strasbourg - St. Denis
Strasbourg - St. Denis (Roy Hargrove)
Over his 30 year career, trumpeter Roy Hargrove blended jazz, hip hop and funk to his own style.
He died young at the age of 49. His most famous tune is Strasbourg - St. Denis, a tribute to a subway station in Paris.
The vocal group Syncop8tion inspired me to write an arrangement for big band and vocals (for female voice, not for vocal group).
The instrumental horn part in the middle follows the lines of Roy Hargrove's solo.
There is no recording of it available yet but on I'll send an mp3 of the score with sampled sounds.
The arrangement is in A-flat, like in the video below.
