Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement With Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This song was written by Alan Lerner & Frederick Loewe for the 1956 Broadway production of "My Fair Lady" and has been covered by many singers including Doris Day, Peggy Lee and Bobby Darin to name but a few. This version is the transcription of Nelson Riddle's outstanding chart done for Dean Martin's 1960 album "This Time I'm Swingin'!" and this chart really does swing from top to toe. The band writing supports the vocalist brilliantly, and the middle 16 measure instrumental passage gives the chart a huge kick and lift. The delicate little piano fills here provide excellent counterpoint to the powerful band phrasing, so we have written them out on the piano part as played. As with nearly all Riddle charts, good phrasing and rhythmic discipline is demanded from the band in order to convey a truly relaxed swing feel to the piece. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is A throughout.
