Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Recorded in 1957/58 and released on her Here's Helen album, this Marion Evans chart is a great example of big band writing that allows the ensemble to shine but not step on the toes of the vocalist. The arrangement begins with cup muted trumpets introducing a rhythmically syncopated theme that will be featured throughout the duration of the piece. After the first vocal chorus, the ensemble is featured in a full-chorus shout section that will usher in a change of keys for the return of the vocalist (going from Db to F to Eb). The final vocal chorus features some different backgrounds, this time showcasing the saxophones with brass interjections. The ending of the arrangement features the return of the same rhythmic pattern from the beginning.

This publication was based on the original set of parts used during the recordings session - this is not a transcription. Both alto saxophones and tenor saxophone 1 have brief flute doubles. However, the parts included have a second staff that avoids these doubles.
