This arrangement for trombone quintet features the first and second trombone with the melody.  The fourth trombone is largely independent, providing rhythmic motion in the phrases. The arrangement has similar range for the first and second trombones, and is set in a comfortable range for bass trombone.  Chords are available in the bass trombone part and lyrics are in the first trombone part so this can be used as the basis for expanded solos. 

Irving Berlin emigrated to the United States in 1893 at the age of 5 with his parents, fleeing Jewish persecution in Russia. He died in 1989 with over 1500 songs to his credit.

The published version of the song, A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody, was an excerpt from a longer version used in the Ziegfeld Follies. It was the hit song of the 1919 Follies and became the theme song. It was also used frequently in Miss America pageants prior to 1955. Berlin believed this song was in the top 5 of the hundreds of songs he wrote.

The arranger, Bob Coil, is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of music, where he studied bass trombone with Betty Glover. Dr. Coil is the leader of the Bones of Cincinnatus trombone ensemble in Cincinnati, OH.
