  • Sentimental Journey

    Co-written by Les Brown for his own Orchestra, Sentimental Journey was a great hit for Doris Day, & this version remains as the definitive standard for the tune. It has to be played bluesy, laid back, softly & not too fast! The brass lines at the end of the first chorus emphasise the 'drag' & the tenor solo behind the vocal re-enforces the lazy feel.

  • That's the Way He Does It

    Recorded by Doris Day with the Lou Bring Orchestra in 1947, this chart is a really laid-back, bluesy swing ballad. The band supports the vocalist beautifully, and the underlying harmonies are rich and lush. The lyric tells the tale of a woman who seems to enjoy being treated badly by her man. Whilst it is somewhat politically incorrect in today's world, the inference can be reversed by swapping "she" for "he" and "him" for "her" in the lyric. All that aside, this chart makes for a great concert piece, or last set mood changer. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Db throughout. Learn More
