Item Number: JL.LL-2247

Once in a while an album is made which simply brims with class. This chart is from such an album - 'Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson' - and it not only oozes class, but swings like crazy too. Nelson Riddle's treatment perfectly balances the showcasing of the vocalist and the talents of the band. The first vocal chorus is backed by a series of call and response figures between the sections, all of which are snappy and pack punch. The insrumental interlude is a development of this theme, with the sax solis answered by the brass, building to a climax before the vocal return for the last chorus and big finish. A class Riddle chart. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Bb throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, Bb5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, F4, D4 Vocal key: Bb Female Vocal Range: A3 - C5 (10 steps as sung).
