Knock On Wood


This Eddie Floyd / Steve Cropper soul classic has been powerfully scored for vocal with big band by Andy Firth. The writing style is big and bold, with lots of references to the opening riff which makes the song so insantly recognisable. The arrangement, whilst essentially a rock chart, has been funked up with a grooving drum pattern, and also features a solo spot for Tenor sax. Also, when you buy this chart you will get two arrangements in one, with parts printed double sided. On one side the chart is in the key of E and on the other it is in the key of G. We have done this to give you the choice between using a male or female vocalist. In the G version we have re-scored the brass in places to lower the lead ranges, so Trumpet 1 only gets to high C. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal range is just over an octave.
