Big band with male vocal - Medium
By Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. Jazz Vocal. Swing. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2184).

Item Number: JL.LL-2184

Here is a transcription of the Nelson Riddle chart done for Frank Sinatra. The original chart was written to include strings, and some orchestral woodwind; these parts have been re-scored into the chart for a regular 5444 line-up. However, to maintain the flavor of the wonderfully conceived original intro, both altos double flutes, and both tenors double clarinet. If your band can't manage this, don't worry. You can kick the chart off from the trombone entry in the 5th measure. The solo muted trumpet licks in the first chorus have been written out, and the vocal part is as-sung by Sinatra. The 4th trombone is bass, though playable by a tenor, with out of range notes taken up an octave, and the vocal key is D throughout. Swing @ 112 bpm. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, G#5, F5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, G4, C#4 Vocal Key D Vocal Range: A2 - E4 (12 steps, as sung).
