CAGE Full O' Blues
From Plank Road Publishingby M.C. Handel
(Low E, G, A, C)
With this down-tempo blues tune, we have created a very versatile selection that works well as a feature for beginning recorder players. But it can be much more than that! While it is conceived so that it will work just fine as written, it can also be used as an introduction to jazz performance at its simplest level for your recorder players or virtually any of your students. There's even an opportunity for your young recorder players to improvise.
Even if you don't have a recorder program, you can have fun with this tune. It works great for Orff mallet instruments, electric keyboard instruments, or almost any elementary melodic instrument. And, using "scat" syllables, it even works for all of your singers. (from Music K-8, Vol. 6, No. 3)
