True, by Gary Kemp, was the title track on Spandau Ballet's 1980s album of the same name and was a worldwide hit. To just say that this arrangement is 'Basie Style' does not do it justice. It is quite simply a perfect creation - right from the delicately phrased piano intro, followed by 9 bars of relaxed full ensemble with a walking bass line and Freddie Green style understated guitar before the vocal starts. The music then very gradually builds to a powerful ending. Brilliant! Also available for Small Band (4175). Vocal Key: . FVocal range: . D - ATrumpet range: . D#6Trombone range: . F#4.
