Here is Rosemary Clooney's cool 1950s version of Oh You Beautiful Doll, written for vocal solo plus 4 piece backing group. If you band doesn't have a vocal group to hand, don't worry! We have written the Trombone parts double-sided, and on the alternate parts they are scored to replace the vocal group, making the chart playable with a full big band and solo vocalist. There are no sax doubles, the brass ranges are moderate and the vocal keys are Db, modulating to Eb and back to Db to close. Style: . Swing @125 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: .
