Item Number: JL.LL-2221

Another jewel of a chart from the Sinatra-Riddle 1954 album 'Swing Easy.' After just a three note intro we're right into the chart, with the rhythm section providing a very structured backing to the first 16 measures of the vocal chorus. These parts have been written as-played so your players can re-create the original feel. Most of the band backings are carried by the reeds and trombones, with the trumpets mostly providing muted background figures. This chart has been scored for 5/4/4/4, with the 4th trombone a bass. There are no sax doubles and the vocal keys are Bb, modulating to B for the final chorus. Swing @ 140 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Ab5, Ab5, Ab5, C5 Trombones 1-4: B4, Bb4, G#4, C#4 Vocal Keys: B flat to B Vocal Range: G2 to D4 (12 steps, as sung).
