Item Number: JL.JLP-9006
Here's another classic Nelson Riddle arrangement from the Frank Sinatra 1956 Capitol Record 'Songs for Swingin' Lovers.' Like the others from this record, this is a masterpiece in big band writing. The arrangement begins with a short piano into (written out, but your pianist can improvise something comparable). The vocals enter at measure 5 with the brass in cup mutes. The string parts have been scored into the band (mostly in the sax section). The ranges are modest. The chart features some nice harmon muted trumpet as solo and backing vocals. These solos have been fully written out for trumpet 2 as well as the chord changes should your player want to improvise something comparable. The vocal key is D throughout. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high B Trombone 1: to high F sharp Vocal Key: D.
