Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement With Vocal

Description: Ballad - Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

First performed and co-written by Edith Piaf though later made famous by Louis Armstrong, this French song has a stunningly beautiful melody line that just glides. This arrangement is an original, from the pen of John Ferguson, written in even tempo and is elegant in its simplicity. A short into with solo Alto answered by solo Trumpet leads to the verse then first vocal chorus. A solo Trumpet picks up the second chorus, followed by a Sax soli, then the vocal is back for the second half of the middle 8 to the end. The band backings are not over complicated and are very lush. There are no Sax doubles. "La Vie En Rose" - a lovely ballad for any band. The vocal key is Ab and is singable by most male or female singers, and we have included both French and English lyrics.
