Jerome Kern: Smoke Gets In Your Eyes 


Popular Favourite Chorals includes five timeless jazz and blues standards arranged for SATB Choir with Piano accompaniment.This collection of arrangements includes classics such as Blue Moon, Over The Rainbow and 3 others. All five songs are sure to have your audience clapping, humming and singing along.Rodgers & Harts classic Blue Moon had several false starts with different lyrics in the 1930s before becoming a smoky hit for Mel Tormé in 1949, a soaring ballad for Elvis Presley in 1956 and a doo wop hit for The Marcels in 1961. The wistful Smoke Gets In Your Eyes came from the 1930s show Roberta but made the R&B charts in 1959 with The Platters definitively soulful version. Incredibly Judy Garlands Over The Rainbow was almost dropped from The Wizard of Oz but survived to become the ultimate movie song classic as well as a Hawaiian-flavoured hit for Israel Kamakawiwo'ole and an emotional posthumous triumph for Eva Cassidy. Try A Little Tenderness was a sweet song rather than a blue one until Otis Redding gave it his famous 60s reading while Hoagy Carmichaels wistful Georgia On My Mind won its jazz and blues credentials with Ray Charles 1960 classic hit version.
