Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Here is a Billy Byers chart that was arranged for the 'Sinatra Live at the Sands' performance and recording with the Count Basie Orchestra. However, this arrangement was not used for that performance. We know it was written for that show as the date written on the manuscript is June 21, 1965, which corresponds to dates on other manuscripts that were used (Where Or When is marked June 20, 1965). And, Byers indicated that is was for 'Basie-Sinatra.' This arrangement has been produced directly from the original manuscript.

This bluesy chart set in a medium swing tempo features some very nice triplet figures throughout. Trombones open with plungers and go back to them at the end of the arrangement. Similar to the other Sands arrangements there was an optional 5th trumpet part written for Harry 'Sweets' Edison that just included chord changes for background fills behind the vocal. There are no saxophone doubles or solos. The vocal key is F throughout.
