Edition: Jazz Little Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Sunny Skylar, born Selig Shaftel in Brooklyn, NY, wrote this tune in 1944. Though it was first performed by a few big bands including the Casa Loma Orchestra, it was a recording by Benny Goodman in 1945 (arranged by Skylar) that turned the song into a hit. It has been recorded by many artists over the years including Woody Herman, Count Basie, Les Brown, Louis Armstrong, and in 1958 by Ella Fitzgerald. This Marty Paich arrangement was part of the Ella Swings Lightly recording session.

Similar to other arrangements by Marty Paich for the Ella Swings Lightly album, the goal is to swing easy. It is essential that a laid-back approach is used. In groups of two eighth notes the first eighth is held longer and the second is shortened. The backgrounds behind the vocal and the soloists should be played softly but with a punch. There are solos for alto saxophone, trombone, and baritone saxophone.

Optional trumpet 3 and trombone 2 parts are included that may be used in place of the horn in F part.

This publication has been based on the original set of parts used during the 1958 recording session - this is not a transcription.
