    (I wonder why) You're just in Love - Irving Berlin - Len Jenkins

    A great example of the compositional genius of Irving Berlin, with not one but two strong melodies, each independently capable of success, intertwined and used in counterpoint to each other. Good fun! See also 'Play a Simple Melody' also available from Wobbleco Music.

    A Holly Jolly Christmas - Johnny Marks - Len Jenkins

    "A Holly Jolly Christmas" is a Christmas song written in 1962 by Johnny Marks. He was also responsible for Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Rocking Around the Christmas Tree amongst his other compositions. The most well-known vocal editions are those by Burl Ives who recorded it in 1964 for a Christmas special, and then re-recorded in 1965 for his holiday album, Have a Holly Jolly Christmas. This latter version of the song has a somewhat slower arrangement than the previous version and featured an acoustic guitar solo introduction; it is this version that has since become the more commonly heard rendition on radio. More recently, it has been recorded by Michael Buble.

    A Lazy Afternoon - Len Jenkins - Len Jenkins

    'A Lazy Afternoon' brings to mind a lazy hot day in summer, possibly starting with a short drive out to somewhere pleasant for an afternoon's picnic. It is accepted that a drive out is now something many would choose to avoid, especially at busy weekends, but one can perhaps dream of open un-cluttered roads with no rush to get there. As such, this piece is ideal for the local summer fete. It has a gentle style that so befits an English village fete, recalling an era when things did not need to be so immediate and may thereby help to give a perfect respite from the everyday 'rush and tear'. As with many of Wobbleco's pieces, this is aimed at the average town and village band, and is within the reasonable playing capabilities of its members.

    Aldebaran - Maurice Forslund - Maurice Forslund

    We are pleased to offer this new piece from our colleague, Maurice Forslund, in Sweden. 'Aldebaran' is a traditional-style brass band march, named after one of the brightest and largest stars in the Northern sky. (The star is a red giant over 40 times the size of our Sun). The music starts off in a sombre minor key that turns progressively brighter step by step. This sequence is arrested by a brief section featuring a setting of the hymn tune 'Bangor' which dramatically puts the march firmly back into the minor key before setting it up for progression to the finale. This piece is graded in the range 'easy' to 'intermediate' and is well within the capabilities of most bands.

    All for One! - Caradog, Hughes & Forslund - Maurice Forslund

    'All for One' is a road march based on two well-known Welsh melodies 'Rachie' by Caradog Roberts and 'Calon L?n' by John Hughes. Supporters of Welsh Rugby Union will probably have sung them on more than one occasion. The two melodies have been assembled, added to, and arranged by our colleague Maurice Forslund in Stockholm, and the resulting march is one that is straightforward, in the traditional Brass Band genre, and well within the capabilities of most bands. It works equally well as a concert opener or a processional march for the village fete.

    All in the April Evening - Hugh S. Roberton - Len Jenkins

    All In the April Evening is a traditional classic hymn suitable for all Christian denominations. The music was composed by Sir Hugh S. Roberton who founded the Glasgow Orpheus Choir, and the definitive arrangement for brass band was later created by Eric Ball. This arrangement takes its inspiration from and pays homage to that work.Despite there being many different arrangements for a variety of voices and instrument numbers, the small brass group has been sadly neglected. This arrangement seeks to rectify that omission.The music is arranged for Brass Quintet with optional Glockenspiel and is printed in two formats, to be equally useful for indoor concerts and outdoor events or parades.

    Anyone Who Had A Heart - Burt Bacharach and Hal David - Len Jenkins

    "Anyone Who Had A Heart" is a song written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) originally for Dionne Warwick in 1963. However, in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand, the cover version by Cilla Black was, and is still, the best loved. Championed by her friends The Beatles, she began her career as a singer in 1963, and her singles "Anyone Who Had A Heart" and "You're My World" both reached number one in the UK in 1964. From the first line, the song has a certain frisson: "Anyone who ever loved, could look at me, and know that I love you." Sadly, Cilla passed away on 1 August 2015 so this is our tribute to a well-loved lady and singer. Our objective has been to interpret the style of the original performance by Cilla, and whilst the time signatures may not be familiar, experience has shown that these are easier to read and play than the alternative using triplets.

    Ave Verum Corpus - W.A. Mozart - Len Jenkins

    "Ave Verum Corpus" is a short religious piece (motet) K. 618, composed by Mozart in 1791 shortly before his death, and is a setting of the 14th century Eucharistic hymn in Latin. He wrote it for a friend Anton Stoll, who was the musical coordinator in the parish of Baden bei Wien, near Vienna. Mozart composed the motet whilst in the middle of writing his opera The Magic Flute and while visiting his wife Constanze, who was pregnant with their sixth child and staying in a spa near Baden. It is only forty-six bars long and was originally scored for SATB choir, string instruments, and organ. Mozart's manuscript contains minimal directions, so we hope you will enjoy our interpretation and arrangement for brass quintet and optional Glockenspiel.

    Bad Moon Rising - John Fogerty - Len Jenkins

    "Bad Moon Rising" is a song written by John Fogerty and performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was the lead single from their album Green River and was released in April 1969, four months before the album. It reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in September 1969 and has been recorded by at least 20 different artists, in styles ranging from folk to reggae to psychedelic rock. The last line of the chorus, "there's a bad moon on the rise", is sometimes misheard as "there's a bathroom on the right" and Fogerty occasionally sings the misheard lyric in concert. The song has become notably popular in Argentina as a football chant and in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, a modified version, titled "Brasil, decime qu? se siente" ("Brazil, Tell Me How It Feels") was sung with Spanish lyrics that taunted Brazil, their traditional rival. It went viral and became very popular (in Argentina).

    Bernie's Song - Miller/Leiber/Stoller ver.Mulligan, arr.John Dankworth - Len Jenkins

    Bernie's Tune is a 1953 jazz standard with music written by Bernie Miller and lyrics by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It was popularised through a recording by the quartet of the American saxophonist and composer Gerry Mulligan, and the tune was a popular choice for musicians jamming at the time. Information about the composer is scarce. All that people really know of him is that he was a piano player from Washington DC. Gerry Mulligan's version was subsequently arranged by the late, legendary John Dankworth and this arrangement for brass band has been faithfully based on it to evoke the atmosphere of that golden era.
