  • Come Back To Me

    This is a fantastic (and difficult) Billy May arrangement from the Sinatra/Ellington album, recorded in 1967. This up-tempo swing chart (quarter note = 300!) features solos for clarinet and tenor sax. Trumpeter Cat Anderson's range was well-known to all. As a result, May writes optional notes for him that go to F7! And, Cat plays them! Of course, we realize that 99.99% of trumpet players can't reach these notes, but they are indicated nonetheless for those who want to try. Jazz Lines Publications is very proud to publish these arrangements with the support of Frank Sinatra Enterprises LLC. Finally the music of a truly landmark and historic recording session is available to the public. This has been published from the original parts used for the recording session. Learn More
