A Night in Tunisia

Both of us played in jazz band through our school days, so we both a have an affinity for jazz music.  This recently posted performance of a jazz standard by Bells of the Sound proves that handbells can take on any jazz band.

For the directors out there, this is also a great piece if you have a few strong ringers that need a challenge.  The accompaniment is just chords, so you can really picture this as a handbell trio with accompanying chimes, bass bells, and drums.
