Harold Arlen & Ted Koehler
This is the original Helen O'Connell version of "I've Got The World on a String", as recorded with the Ray Anthony Orchestra in his 1953 Chesterfield Show. It is not a transcription. Although a short chart in actual playing time, it is full of punch, energy and drive, and in itself is a piece of American musical history. There are no Sax doubles and the vocal key is Bb throughout. Learn More£29.50
This is the original Helen O'Connell version, from her 1957 album "Green Eyes", as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. It is a richly textured & lush, bluesy ballad perfectly suited to a female alto voice. The reeds are written AATTB, with no sax doubles. Brass ranges are very playable too, with lead Trumpet up to high C & 2, 3 & 4 called to reach high Bb. Lead Trombone is written to Bb, with 2 & 3 written to A. The vocal key is G throughout the chart. Although the tempo is indicated at 65 b.p.m. the chart works well at tempos up to 80 b.p.m. Learn More£29.50
