Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This is the original Helen O'Connell version of "Amapola" taken from her 1957 album "Green Eyes," as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. The original Marion Evans manuscript was used, this is not a transcription. However, it has been modified slightly by the addition the as-played dynamic markings on the instrument parts. In addition, the chart has been written out in full, rather than using the original DS al Coda indications. The chart calls for the entire sax sextion to double clarinets. However, an alternate set of sax parts has been included on the reverse of the originals that avoids the need for clarinet doubles, making the chart playable by an AATTB line-up throughout. The vocal key is F.
