Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Ballad - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This is the original Helen O'Connell version of "Time Was," from her 1957 album "Green Eyes," as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra, and it opens as a beautifully scored lush ballad which switches into a double-time swing feel halfway through the chart. The reeds are written AATTB, with AATT all expected to double clarinet, and the baritone to double bass clarinet. However, recognizing that not every sax team can cope with this, alternate sax parts which do not have any required instrument doubles have been included. These parts are printed on the reverse of the original sax parts. The vocal key is Bb throughout. Also, this is not a transcription - the original handwritten Marion Evans arrangement has been used and adapted.
