This version of Why Don't You Do Right was recorded in 1942 by Peggy Lee during her stay with the Benny Goodman band and Peggy made this song her own. Goodman's chart has been faithfully transcribed here, including all of the Clarinet licks and solos, but the brass has been expanded from the original 6 up to 8. The sax parts are written for Solo Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors & Baritone though an an extra Alto sax part (the Tenor 1 part, written for Alto) is included to give you a bit more flexibility in the section. The brass ranges are very moderate, and aside from the Clarinet solos there are no surprises, so the chart is very playable. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, Bb5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, F4, D4, D4 Vocal key: F - Female Vocal A3 - D5 (10 steps).
