Item Number: JL.JLP-9368


This arrangement was originally sketched by Nelson Riddle for the Nat Cole TV show in either 1956 or '57 and orchestrated by Leo Shuken. The arrangement was then used for the movie St. Louis Blues, filmed in 1958 (with Nat Cole singing and playing the part of W.C. Handy). This is a dramatic feature for your vocalist and is not a technically demanding arrangement to put together. Reeds 1 and 2 double on flute and reed 3 doubles on clarinet. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to C6; Trumpet 2: to A5; Trombone 1: to C5.
