Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Ballad - Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is another original Helen O'Connell chart as played by her on her many concert tours. This is not a transcription. To the best of our knowledge this chart was not commercially recorded, hence there is no audio sample. The arrangement opens with a rubato Trumpet 1 muted solo over the reeds (also cued on the other 3 Trumpet parts) which leads to the rarely heard verse of the tune. The full band picks up in tempo and the vocalist enters for the single chorus, beautifully yet sparingly backed by the band. The tempo indication is set at 72 beats per minute, though it will work if played a little slower. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Bb throughout.
