  • Taking A Chance On Love

    Taking a Chance on Love was written in 1940, & despite being a last minute inclusion for the Broadway musical "Cabin in the Sky" it became the show's most enduring hit. Benny Goodman recorded this version in 1940 featuring the vocal of Helen Forrest. It was re-released in 1943 and charted for 14 weeks including 3 weeks at the No. 1 spot. We have adapted Fletcher Henderson's original Goodman chart up to 8 brass, & have scored the reeds CAATT. No sax doubles, brass ranges are moderate & the short Tenor solo and BG's cameo solos are written out "as played". Learn More
  • Taking a Chance on Love

    Another chart from the Sinatra Riddle 1954 album "Swing Easy". After just a three note intro we're right into the chart, with the rhythm section providing a very structured backing to the first 16 measures of the vocal chorus. We have written these parts "as played.Most of the band backings are carried by the reeds & trombones, with the trumpets mostly providing muted background figures. We have scored this chart for 5/4/4/4, with the 4th trombone a Bass. There are no sax doubles,  vocal keys are Bb, modulating to B for the final chorus. Learn More
