This classic Sinatra arrangement from the pen of Quincy Jones comes from 'It Might As Well Be Swing' album, recorded in 1964 with the Count Basie Orchestra. This song, along with Luck Be a Lady; My Kind of Town; New York, New York; and a few others helped cement Sinatra's unique, memorable, and often imitated style and image. This is a very laid back, swinging arrangement (a la Count Basie) that allows the singer to shine. Trumpet 1 gets to a high E, trumpet 2 to a high C and trombone 1 gets to a high C flat. As a result of those high notes, we have marked this arrangement as difficult. Ranges:Trumpet 1: E above staff. Trumpet 2: C above staff. Trombone 1: C flat above staff. Trombone 2: B flat above staff. Vocal Key: A flat to C to D flat to A Vocal Range: A flat below staff (lowest note) to D flat in staff (highest note).
