New Workshop-On-A-CD Available - "Sentimental Journey"

Postby Tull » Wed Jun 07, 2017 3:21 pm

Just wanted to let you all know about a new workshop/teaching CD packet I have available from my website, Eagle Creek Music.

“Sentimental Journey” was written by saxophonist and big band leader Les Brown, along with Bud Green and Ben Homer, in 1944. They recorded it in 1945, with Doris Day providing the lead vocals. Its release coincided with the end of World War II, and quickly became the unofficial homecoming theme for soldiers returning from the war. It shot up to #1 on the Billboard charts, and remained in the top 10 for a record 9 months. Today it remains on the Top 100 Songs list by Rolling Stone Magazine. It has become a jazz standard, and been recorded by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Glen Miller, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Judy Collins, Willie Nelson, and the Carpenters.

This arrangement has 2-parts – the melody, and a harmony part. The melody part requires the use of the 1+ fret (a temporary 1+ fret can be fashioned from a paper clip and some scotch tape).

The 70-minute teaching CD is divided up into individual tracks covering small sections of each part in detail, looping entire parts, and culminating with a “play-along” track that combines both parts.

Here's a link to a YouTube video of the original version recorded by "Les Brown and His Band of Renown", with Doris Day providing the vocals:

Here's a link to a sample clip of the 2-part mountain dulcimer arrangement.
