Just a Closer Walk With Thee is an Afro-American Spiritual Hymn and Song. This version is arranged as a duet for one Trumpet and one Trombone.

Little is known of the origins of Just a Closer Walk With Thee, other than it was sung in African-American churches in the nineteenth century. National religious conventions in the 1930s gave the hymn a wider audience. Many versions were recorded in the 1940s and Just a Closer Walk With Thee was quickly adopted as a standard by the New Orleans Jazz revival.

Just a Closer Walk With Thee is simply arranged in a key and range best suited to the instruments. The melody is played, with variations, five times in 6/8 meter.  Click the link above to listen to a full Youtube performance of the Clarinet version of this duet.
