By Earth Wind and Fire. By Al McKay, Maurice White, and Allee Willis. Arranged by Sarah Cellobat Chaffee. Pop, Rock. Score and parts. 22 pages. Sarah Cellobat Chaffee #6534789. Published by Sarah Cellobat Chaffee (A0.526355).

Item Number: A0.526355

Released as a single in 1978 by Earth, Wind & Fire, "September" immediately became a huge commercial success; it reached Number 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B Chart, became one of the band's signature songs, and was even added to the Library of Congress' list of sound recordings that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important" for America. So you can't go wrong adding this one to your gig books! This Cellobat arrangement for string quartet brings to life the funky bass lines, soaring melodies, soulful jazzy harmonies, and interlocking rhythmic grooves of the original for a chart that's definitely as fun to play as it is to listen to -- you're sure to get your audience singing along! Rated advanced intermediate, mainly for some complex rhythms throughout and some higher notes in the violin parts (up to 3rd position).
