Product Description

This piece, originally written for SATB* choir but offered here in a reduced version for two parts, highlights key figures in African-American history, in particular musicians (a play on the jazz slang term "cat"). My hope is that the piece will spark conversations about these important figures among students, teachers, and audience members. Using a work song groove with short overlapping rhythmic motives, the song has limited range and no major technical challenges, but requires rhythmic precision and clear diction.

A separate set of instrumental parts is available (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, vibraphone, double bass, percussion, and drum set) for the arrangement as heard in audio clip.

*SATB version also available on SheetMusicPlus.com

**All composer royalties from purchases of this sheet music will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
