Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Solo Vocal and Vocal Group

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is the 1944 hit version of "Accentuate the Positive," performed by Johnny Mercer (who wrote the lyrics) and the Pied Pipers, with the Paul Weston Orchestra. The arrangement is scored for full big band, vocal solo and four piece vocal backing group. The chart also works fine without the backing singers, as their lines have been cross-cued into the trombone parts. Alto 1 doubles clarinet in the opening verse, but aside from this there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key is F throughout. Swing @ 85& 120 b.p.m.
