This is a nice rock chart from master arranger Hal Mooney, as performed by Helen O'Connell. This is not a transcription, the original handwritten manuscript was used to produce this arrangement. This arrangement begins rubato with a brief ensemble passage featuring arco bass. This proceeds to a piano/bass colla voce for the A section of the tune. The band is cued in at B in soft rock style with drums on brushes. At the end of the chorus there is a brief piano/bass colla voce that features a quote of the song 'All the Things You Are.' The band is then cued back in for the last A section of the tune. The chart finishes with a rubato section with arco bass. Ranges:Trumpet 1: C above staff. Trumpet 2: B flat above staff. Trombone 1: high B flat above staff. Trombone 2: G above staff. Vocal Key: G flat modulating to G. Female Vocal Range: F below staff (lowest note) to C in staff (highest note).
