Big band with vocal - Difficult
By Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. Jazz Vocal. Swing. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2244).

Item Number: JL.LL-2244

Here is the Ella Fitzgerald / Nelson Riddle version of I Only Have Eyes For You, transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the "Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson" album. The original version contained strings, which have been scored back into the saxes, making the chart playable by a regular 5/4/4/4 line-up. As you would expect from a Riddle chart, this arrangement is full of punch, contains some great rhythmic and harmonic writing and is full of interest for band and audience alike. It has been rated at the difficult level, mainly because of the brass ranges. Lead trumpet hits high E and lead trombone high C. The 4th trombone is a bass (playable 8va by a tenor). There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is G throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, C#5, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, G4, E4, D4 Vocal key: G Female Vocal Range: D3 - D5 (2 octaves, as sung).
