Composer Michael Franks
Arranger Gerhard Guter







The lead-off arrangement for Vocalogy’s latest CD “Refilled” is available for your own vocal group to enjoy! Gerhard Guter‘s arrangement pays tribute to Michael Franks’ tongue-in-cheek classic; utilizing the same memorable vamp, vocal phrasing, and alternation between swing and shuffle that fans will remember from his breakout album “The Art of Tea.” Add to these: exciting vocal counterpoint, instrumental inflections and a conversational ensemble approach to the melody, and you have a fun-yet-accessible arrangement! Opening with a laid-back swing feel, “Eggplant” grows into an exciting shuffle with horn-like inflections and an instru-vocal approach. Doubled lines are notated for the keyboardist and solo opportunities with vocal backgrounds are available. All the while, it’s a great opportunity for your rhythm section to explore swing versus shuffle concepts.

Parts provided for: vocals, piano, bass, drums
