Swing, Key of D
This is Jon Harpin's interpretation of Nelson Riddle's punchy chart for Frank Sinatra. The concept has been adapted to make the chart playable by a regular 5-4-4-4 big band line-up, with no strings or tuned percussion. The saxes are scored for a regular AATTB section, with alto 1 doubling clarinet. At one and a half minutes in duration this is a short chart, yet full of power, punch and tonal flavour. The vocal key is D throughout.
