Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Latin - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This is the genuine Helen O'Connell version from her "Green Eyes" album. This chart is not a transcription and has been recreated from the original manuscripts, although the ending has been shortened by 4 measures (she performed it like this in her concerts and radio broadcasts). However, what you get with this chart is actually 2 charts in one package. The album chart was scored for 5 woodwind (3 clarinets all doubling flute and 2 bass clarinets) a full string section and 4 rhythm. All of these parts are included, so you can recreate the O'Connell original. Recognizing that not all bands have strings to call on, or sax players who double flutes and clarinets, an alternate arrangement has been included in the pack in which the chart has been rescored for a conventional 5/4/4/4 big band. In this version alto 1 doubles clarinet. You get a full score of each version too.
