Item Number: JL.LL-2268

Transcribed from the album 'Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook' this chart was written by Adler and Ross for the musical 'The Pajama Game,' and was a huge hit for Rosemary Clooney. Midler's version opens with the little colla voce verse, though you can kick it off straight into tempo at measure 5 if preferred. The piano backings in the first chorus have been written out to match the recording and keep the flavor of the original. Also included on the vocal part is Midler's studio backing overdub answer-back lines, though they are not really necessary in a performance of the chart. You could assign the answer-back to one member of the band to enhance the effect at a stage performance. Midler's original also had some string lines which have been assigned to the sax section. The vocal keys are A, modulating to Bb, and there are no sax doubles. Swing @ 110 bpm. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, A5, D5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, G4, C4 Vocal key: A to Bb Vocal Range: G#3 to Bb4 (9 steps, as sung).
