Edition: Jazz Studio Orchestra Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Ballad - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

In 1904 Italian composer Fermo Dante Marchetti wrote a waltz for piano solo titled Valse Tzigane. The following year French songwriter and actor Maurice de Féraudy penned lyrics to the tune and it became a popular song. Many years later, in 1955, Dick Manning wrote English lyrics to the tune that pushed singers to rediscover the beauty of the melody. In 1957 both Dinah Shore and Jane Morgan had charting recordings of this song. Also, in 1957 Nat Cole recorded this brilliant Nelson Riddle arrangement.

Though a vocal feature in nature, the arrangement also features a trombone soloist.

This publication has been prepared from Nelson Riddle's original pencil score and the set of parts used during the recording session - this is not a transcription. Please note that due to copyright restrictions the lyrics are not included.
