BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. Here is a lovely vocal version of the famous standard as arranged by Hal Mooney and performed by Helen O'connell. There is nothing complicated about this arrangement - it is light and swinging, a great showcase for your vocalist. For added interest there are some brief arco bass passages. Learn More£55.00
Transcribed from the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook". Midler's version opens with the little Colla Voce verse, though you can kick it off straight into tempo at measure 5. We have written out the Piano backings in the first chorus to match the recording & keep the flavour of the original.Included on the Vocal part is Midler's studio backing overdub answerback lines though not really necessary in a performance of the chart. You could assign the answerback to one of the band, to enhance the effect at a stage performance. Midler's orig. also has some String lines which we have assigned to the Sax section. Learn More£29.50
The mood of the arrangement is setup with an opening sax/rhythm section unison line. Drums are either on Latin percussion throughout or on a set without using the cymbals for most of the chart. The difficulty in this chart is the staccato hits and accents that the band do together - especially the end of the chart. The brief vocal cameos (shouting"Uh") have been scored into the band in the event that your players don't want to do them. Though in some way it really makes the chart. There are no doubles.
