Go tell it on the mountain


John Behnke (b1953) is a professor at Concordia University in Wisconsin, USA. His Go tell it on the mountain, which comes from a 2003 Bärenreiter collection entitled Jazz Inspirations for Organ, introduces the ‘blues’ theme. Marked ‘With a detached swing’, this brief number quickly works up to a fortissimo statement of the famous tune.

Sein Stück Go tell it on the mountain, das dem bei Bärenreiter 2003 veröffentlichten Sammelband mit dem Titel Jazz Inspirations for Organ entnommen wurde, beginnt das Bluesthema. Diese kurze Nummer enthält den Hinweis „mit einem zurückhaltenden Swing“ und kulminiert bald in der berühmten, fortissimo gespielten Melodie.
