Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Female Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Here is Helen O'Connell's original arrangement of 'I Cried for You' from her 1962 'Here's Helen' album. This is not a transcription, the original Marion Evans manuscript has been used. This is just a great chart beginning with a bouncy swing figure in the reeds and drums on brushes. The trumpets come in with a nice syncopated melody behind the vocals with Harmon mutes on. In the middle there is a brass soli followed by a reed soli that leads to an 8-bar trombone solo (trombone 2). The solo has not been written out, but guide notes (per the original manuscript) and chord changes have been supplied. Your piano player gets to play a little bit by supplying fills behind the vocals per the original recording. The ranges for the trumpets are modest; trumpet 1 gets to high D towards the end of arrangement and trombone 1 goes to high B flat. There are no doubles. The vocal key is B flat modulating to B for the last 12 bars.
