AS RECORDED BY FRANK SINATRA WITH COUNT BASIE
ARRANGED BY QUINCY JONES, TRANSCRIBED BY SYD POTTER
Here is another classic Sinatra arrangement, this one from the pen of Quincy Jones. In 1966 Frank Sinatra collaborated with the Count Basie Orchestra to produce a series of shows at the Sands Hotel. 'Sinatra Live at the Sands' was the now-famous recording that was made. Quincy Jones did most of the arrangements with some help from Billy Byers.
This arrangement of the Rube Bloom classic tune moves along at approximately 69 bpm - a very laid back swing feel. Towards the end there is a great band shout section - and they really shout and build to a climax before dropping back down for Frank's entrance. The end of the arrangement will require some conducting as there are multiple fermatas. The vocal key is E flat throughout and there are no doubles.
Trumpet 1: High C
