About the Song
Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets. It was only in the 1950s when musicians started to bring music sheets to bands so they could play, allowing more people to hear their compositions. Simply, a music sheet is musical composition in printed form. It is composed of unbound sheets of paper where a musical notation of a song is printed. Many associate it with popular music. However, musicians say popular songs are not the only ones written down on paper. Many classical songs were published in music sheets and classical musicians performed even unfamiliar songs with these printed compositions.  (More...)    Download this sheet!
About the Artist
Michael Clement Irving Gibbs (born September 25, 1937 in Salisbury, Zimbabwe) is a jazz composer, conductor, arranger and producer as well as a trombonist and keyboarder. He studied piano from age seven to thirteen and took up trombone at seventeen. In 1959 he moved to Boston to study at the Berklee College of Music and the Boston Conservatory. At Berklee he studied under and worked with Herb Pomeroy. He graduated from Berklee in 1962 and the conservatory in 1963. In 1965 he returned to what was then Southern Rhodesia, but later was associated with the United Kingdom. After recording with Graham Collier, John Dankworth, Kenny Wheeler and Mike Westbrook in the late 1960s, he released his first album Michael Gibbs in 1970. His orchestras were important stages in the careers of various fusion musicians, and his arranging, conducting and producing work was well appreciated (see discography.) He is known for collaborations with Gary Burton, his student, and for his ability to utilize rock elements in orchestral jazz. He also taught at Berklee for much of the 1970s.
