Almost Like Being In Love
Big band with vocal - Difficult
By Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. Swing. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2233).
Item Number: JL.LL-2233
Transcribed from her 'Unforgettable' album, here is Natalie Cole's up tempo, hard swinging version of Almost Like Being In Love. This chart really kicks from start to finish, and is full of power and punch, though it is not that easy to get right. The band will need to be tight, and the trumpet section has some quick unison lines to get their fingers around. Precision is needed otherwise things can get messy. Ms. Cole's vocal line is notated 'as sung,' including the little scat towards the end of the instrumental bridge, and the muted trumpet solo at the close has been written out. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is F, modulating to Gb in the final chorus. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, C6, G5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, F4, D4 Vocal key: F modulating to GbFemale Vocal Range: C4 - F5 (11 steps, as sung).
