Late in 1955 and early in 1956 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all-time: Songs for Swingin' Lovers. This is the closing track of that disc, which swings as heartily as the rest of the cuts on the record, which might be the very best album from the strongest period of Frank's long career. This chart brings one of Sinatra's very best and timeless recordings sparkling to life. This classic version of How About You is a particularly famous arrangement crafted by the brilliant arranger Nelson Riddle. This chart is instantly recognizable from the first few notes and swings like mad. This has been adapted to suit a big band lineup of 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, drums, and vocals. There are no sax doubles and trumpet 1 gets to a high c.
