When You're Smiling by Frank Sinatra. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2275).
This chart has been transcribed from the Nelson Riddle arrangement as performed by Frank Sinatra on 'Sinatra's Swingin' Session,' and is very true to the original. A couple of minor adjustments have been made to make it playable by a standard 5444 line up. Backing string lines are scored into the trumpets (muted) and the trombone section has been augmented to 4 voices. Other than this, it's just like the record. The muted trumpet solo fills and the important drum licks and kicks have also been written out. After an 8-measure intro which sets the feel of what is to come, it's a vocal feature throughout, backed by some very cool and swinging writing for the blowers which compliments the vocal phrasing all the way through the chart. This is Riddle at his best. The vocal key is Ab, modulating to A half way through. Don't be put off by seeing the Eb instruments playing in 6 sharps. The notes fall easily under the players' fingers. The brass ranges are very playable (lead trumpet to high D6) though trombone 1 has a couple of high B4s and C5s to cope with. There are no sax doubles. Swing @ 160 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, C6, E5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, F4, Eb4 Vocal Keys: Ab to A Vocal Range: C3 to E4 (10 steps, as sung).
