Edition: Jazz Studio Orchestra Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Late in 1955 and early in 1956 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all-time: 'Songs for Swingin' Lovers.' We are very proud to offer the classic 'It Happened in Monterey' from this album. This chart brings one of Sinatra's very best and timeless recordings sparkling to life.

This definitive vocal version of Monterey is a very well-crafted arrangement by the brilliant arranger Nelson Riddle. From the opening straight-eight melody to the triplets tossed between sections, this chart is instantly recognizable. In 2016 we revised our earlier publication, and re-released a studio orchestra version of this arrangement. Included are parts for violins, viola, and celli. An optional alternate synthesizer part has been included that may be used in place of the strings. The vocal key is G.
