Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Contemporary Pop. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2258).
Sweet Caroline was a huge hit for Neil Diamond, and has become one of those songs that everybody knows. If you're ever stuck for a crowd-pleasing vocal at a function gig, this is the chart for you. This arrangement has been scored to match the style and duration of the original, and the feel and flavor have been retained as well. This is a very easy chart to play, with lead trumpet to top stave G5, and lead trombone to G3. The 4th trombone is written for bass but playable by tenor, and there are no sax doubles. The vocal key is C throughout. Pop @ 125 b.p.m.
