Ballad: Key of F
Another classic Billy May arrangement from the Francis A. and Edward K. record from 1967. Engraved from the original manuscript: this is not a transcription. Authorized and produced with the full support of the Estate of Billy May, this is not a very complicated arrangement technically-speaking. However, there are some VERY sophisticated and lush voicing that the band will need to give serious thought to--especially where dynamics are concerned. A proper balance is a must in order to have this come off the way May intended it. Tenor 1 doubles on clarinet and baritone doubles on bass clarinet--though both are very brief doubles. Like the other arrangements from this record, there were originally only 3 trombone parts and no guitar. A 4th trombone has been added, but there is no guitar part. Lastly, the drum part consists of a slow swing on the ride cymbal with occasional hit-hat through most of the chart.
