Every Time I Feel the Spirit
"Slow and Bluesy," is the marking that arranger Sondra Tucker gives her setting of the lively spiritual. For 12 measures the introduction "slides" around chromatically before settling into a fast, swing style at half note = 84. A walking bass line is marked with staccato technique while the upper bells on melody employ ring touch to make a point. Arranged in Eb Major and F Major, measures total 87.
