Cheek to Cheek is a transcription of the original Paul Westo n chart, as recorded on Ella's " Irving Berlin Songbook " album. The pace is easy, and Ella's vocal interpretation is sublime. The vocal part is written "as sung" by her. The band backings are relaxed, yet punchy, and support the vocalist perfectly. We have written the delightful muted Trumpet solo for the second part and recommend that your player plays it "as written", rather than faking a jazz solo, as the original is totally in keeping with the feel of the chart. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is F throughout. Style: . Swing @145 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4 . D6, C6, C6, C6 Trombones . 1-4 . C5, A4, Ab4, D4 Vocal key F . .
