Mister Sunadapted/arr. Paul Jennings
This is a lively, happy song for your singers squirming in their seats waiting for summer vacation. Our version of this old children's song is set as a shuffle/swing tune which opens with a tone painting of the sun rising with whole-tone chords. The orchestration is lots of fun, with bass clarinet and muted brass, and a stellar performance by our rhythm section.
The arrangement and recording have three verses. For the first and third verses, your kids sing the song. For the second verse they do body percussion, clapping and patsching. (from Music K-8, Vol. 26, No. 5)
