Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Ballad - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is the tune that Frank Sinatra called "the national anthem" and it's a chart that is sure to bring the house down. Sinatra's classic version, written by Don Costa, was very orchestral, and it has been adapted here to suit a regular 5444 band line-up without losing the feel of the original, by re-scoring the string lines into the saxes, with the 1st alto doubling flute, and the 2nd alto doubling clarinet. The piano part is also written out in full. The brass ranges are moderate, with 1st & 2nd trumpet to C#6, and 1st trombone to A4, with 4th as a Bass. The vocal key is D throughout. This chart is one of those must-have charts for any library. Ballad @ 80 bppm.
