The Very Thought of You is the Ella Fitzgerald version. Originally arranged by Nelson Riddle, it has been transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin. This chart is featured on the 'Ella Swings Gently With Nelson' album. Although the original was scored with strings, those string parts have been written into the band, making the chart playable with a regular 5/4/4/4 line up. Please note that separate string parts are not available. The trombones are written fairly high in the intro, with the lead expected to pick a high C out of the air in the 3rd measure. Therefore the trombone lines have been cued onto the trumpet parts in the intro, to make things a bit easier. The muted trumpet solo is written out 'as played', though your player can improvise a solo from the chords provided too. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Eb. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, A5, F5 Trombones 1-4: C5, Bb4, G4, Eb4 Vocal key Eb.
