Item Number: JL.LL-2345
This version of Ain't We Got Fun was recorded by Doris Day, with the Paul Weston Orchestra accompanied by the Norman Luboff Choir. The original arrangement was by Paul Weston. Our transcription closely mirrors the original, except that we have cued the Trombone section with the 4 voice backing group (choir) parts, making the chart playable by big band and solo female vocalist. The chart is an out-and-out vocal feature and contains no band solos or even ensemble choruses, aside from intro, modulation and ending. The vocal key opens in Bb, modulates to C and reverts to Bb. The brass ranges are very moderate and there are no sax doubles. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, E5, D5Trombones 1-4: G4, D4, C4, Bb3Vocal Key: Bb to C to BbVocal Range: F3 - C5 (12 steps as sung).
