All Or Nothing At All


Here is our transcription and adaptation of Nelson Riddle's chart done for Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night" album. Sinatra often referred to this song as his first hit - a reference to his time with the Harry James band - and he continued to sing it right up to his retirement in 1995. We have adapted the Riddle chart slightly, to remove the string lines and score them back into the band, making this chart playable with a standard 5444 line-up. Both Altos double Clarinet and the fourth Trombone is a Bass. The Piano part can be played on keyboards using an Electric Piano / Fender Rhodes patch. The vocal key is Am (C) modulating to Ab for the bridge.
