St. James Infirmary

The fabulous Katie Smith sings on this popular blues song.  This arrangement is 1 of 10 that I wrote for her. It was a lot of work but a great pleasure!  This particular tune was part of a six song program entitled "Ill Fated Love" and the songs were along that theme. I wrote another four arrangements that Katie also sang on and they were more Broadway/show tune oriented.

The score for this arrangement of St. James Infirmary Blues is available on Sheet Music Plus!
