This version of 'You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby' has been transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the version Peggy Lee recorded in 1967 on the Capitol album 'Something Groovy!,' and it's written in a swingin' '60s pop style. There has been a bit of adaptation to the chart to give you some options in performance: the solo guitar lines have been cued into the saxes in case your band has no guitarist. Original string lines are written in the reeds as well. Although playable with an upright bass, and electric bass works best. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Ab. Pop @ 133 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Eb4, C4, Bb3 Vocal Key: Ab Vocal Range: Eb3 to Ab4 (11 steps, as sung).
