In this arrangement for trombone quintet, the melody is predominantly in the first and 2nd parts, with the range on the first part up to b1 above the staff and the second trombone goes to a1 above the staff. This song is often performed without the verse, which precedes the chorus, but is included in this arrangement, set apart with a lighter texture and slower tempo. The stretching of pulse in the first measure can be omitted if the cohesiveness of the ensemble dictates. The familiar chorus should have a comfortable swing feel.

The lyrics, by George Norton, "Come to me my melancholy baby, Cuddle up and don't be blue", have probably been whispered between partners countless times. This infectious little tune has been recorded in a variety of tempos and styles, from sultry ballad to up tempo swing, by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Charlie Parker. The combination of lyrics and melody have made this a timeless hit.

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.
