American Folk Suite Arranged by Jay Althouse. For Instrumental Accomp Parts. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 23852, UPC: 038081239477)

There's just so much fun to be had with this sometimes tender, sometimes rollicking medley by accomplished arranger Jay Althouse. Five folk songs are combined into a thematic story which cleverly chronicles the journey of wedding-bound sweethearts. Opens gently with the melodic "Red River Valley," grooves through a rhythmic "Nine Hundred Miles," and firmly ties the knot with "Cindy!" The optional SoundTrax and SoundPax parts provide a solid folk accompaniment. SoundPax includes parts for 2 cl., a. sax., t. sax., tpt., tbn., rhy.
