Johnny Griffin's Big Soul Band!
Wade in the Water is one of the best known—and hippest—Negro Spirituals.
Here's a quick lead sheet that you can use with your combo. It doesn't really relate to either recording above, but I wanted to share both with you nonetheless.
In fact, I first became aware of this tune through my college roommate Tony Beaudry, who had the Griffin side on vinyl. It blew me away back in 1990 and remains to this day one of my favorite big band recordings. If you don't have it, you should pick up a copy. Now. Here's the AMAZON LINK.
