Item Number: JL.LL-2026
Another great tune from Frank Sinatra's Reprise days. The original version of this chart featured female backing vocals and a Leslie-style organ. We appreciate that this limits the playability of such an arrangement, so Jon Harpin has creatively transcribed and re-scored for a standard big band line-up. The B.V.'s are shared between a quartet of 2 Saxes, Trumpet & Trombone, and the opening Organ solo has also been scored into the Sax parts should your Pianist not have the appropriate bag of tricks to make a nice Organ noise. There are no Sax doubles and the brass ranges are moderate to low. We have graded this as an Medium Easy piece, but boy, it's a real crowd pleaser!Swing (12:8 feel) @ 76 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, F5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Gb4, D4, C4 Male Vocal: Eb3 - F4.
