  • Hey There

    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
  • In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening

    Bette Midler Big Band Girl Vocal Chart. From the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook" this chart is a punch up-tempo swinger, an out and out vocal feature with no solo space in the band backings,  We have written the required articulation on all of the parts. Midler's original had some String lines. We have incorporated the flavour of these lines into the Sax section, but written as "optional subtones".The vocal part is notated "as sung" by Mrs Midler & vocal keys are C modulating to Db. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Mambo Italiano

    We have transcribed this chart from the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook". We think that the arrangement packs more punch than Ms Clooney's original, and will be an almost guaranteed hit at any concert or dance. The rhythm parts are written out, though your players can lay down their own interpretations if preferred. We have scored the backing vocals into the sax parts, and if your players aren't comfortable singing they can simply play the notes instead. This is a high energy latin chart, and a great addition to any library. The vocal key is Gm, modulating to Abm for the final chorus. The range is such that it is quite singable by most male singers too. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Stuff Like That There

    Adapted from the original Billy May arrangement used in the Bette Midler film 'For The Boys' where she is performing in front of a hanger full of USAAF personnel during an air raid. Stuff Like That There is an up, bouncy vocal chart that really moves along. The short intro & lovely vocal & piano Colla Voce duet gives no clue to what is to come, until the vocalist picks up the tempo into the main swing boogie part of the chart. The secret to success with this number is to play it with a really relaxed feel, & it will really swing. Learn More
