"My Melancholy Baby" is a rare chart from the Glenn Miller Orchestra, originally arranged by Bill Finegan and transcribed here by Alan Glasscock. It is as played by the Miller Band, except that we have augmented the brass to 8 voices from the original 6. Tex Beneke took the vocal, and to give the chart a bit more flexibility for your band we have cued the vocal line onto the Tenor 1 part, making the chart playable as an instrumental too. Tenor 1 also has the earlier sax solo which comes before the modulation. Alto 1 doubles Clarinet, and Baritone doubles Alto. The vocal chorus is in Db.
