By Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. Jazz Vocal. Swing. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9035).

Item Number: JL.JLP-9035

This swinging Nelson Riddle arrangement comes from Frank Sinatra's 'Swingin' Session and More' record. In typical Riddle fashion, the chart begins with a memorable introduction and then the vocals enter with great rhythmic figures in the sax section and a familiar baritone sax line. Then the brass enter for the second A section and the chart really gets going. There is a tenor saxophone solo (over the first two A sections) that has been written out in full. The chord changes have been included as well in the event that your player wants to improvise instead. There are no saxophone doubles. The ranges, however, do need to be mentioned: trumpet 1 goes to high E and trombone 1 gets into the extended range and goes up to high D flat on 5 occasions. So, the arrangement has been marked as difficult dues to the high ranges of the brass. Ranges:Trumpet 1: to high E Trombone 1: to high D flat (extended range) Vocal Key: D flat.
