Zing Went the Strings of My Heart was recorded by Frank Sinatra in December 1960 for the Ring-a-Ding album, but remained unreleased until 1990 when the master tapes of the original recording were rediscovered. This chart is a Sinatra gem, and even includes the rarely-heard opening verse. Beautifully transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the original Johhny Mandel arrangement, to incorporate the strings back into a regular big band line-up, this chart is unique and deserves a place in everyones library. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet briefly.Swing @ 112 & 172 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, D6, Bb5, F5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, F4, Db4 Vocal key: Db [Male Vocal] Bb2 - Eb4 (10 steps).
