Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Artie Shaw band, this is an accurate transcription of the original Jerry Gray concept, complete with the intro piano solo and Shaw's silky first chorus solo line. A couple of small adaptations have been made: the saxes are scored for AATTB, with Alto 1 taking the clarinet lines, baritone doubling alto (to give the correct AATT backing to the clarinet), and the brass has been augmented to 8 voices. All of the correct articulations, mute indications and dynamics are included, to enable an authentic performance. The vocal key is F and the vocal range would suit most male or female singers. The modulation into the vocal key is somewhat abrupt, so to help pitch the first vocal note the singer will need to listen to the top sax voice fairly carefully. Other than this, the chart is very playable, and the brass ranges are moderate. This is a great arrangement of a wonderful song.
