Featured chart

Groovin' Hard

Performed by UNT-Jennifer Barnes
A bit more about this chart...
The 2015 National ACDA conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, was simply amazing, featuring fantastic choirs, excellent workshops and world-class presenters. Jazz Night proved to be one of the great ones. Representative groups from community colleges and universities presented an evening of jazz - jazz choir music at it’s best. The group that ended the show was none other than our Jennifer Barnes’ Jazz Singers from the University of North Texas. These highly selected students are members of one the most exemplary jazz choirs in the nation. They perform with a strong sense of confidence and passion. One of the reasons the concert was so terrific was Jennifer’s choice to end the concert with one of the great all time jazz songs, Groovin’ Hard. Composed by Don Menza, originally performed by the incomparable Buddy Rich Big Band and arranged for jazz choirs by Dave Barduhn, perhaps one of the most prolific band and jazz choir writers of our time. If you want to do it classy, here is the chart for you.
