Almost Like Being In Love


Transcribed from her "Unforgettable" album, here is Natalie Cole's up tempo, hard swinging version of Almost Like Being In Love. This chart really kicks from start to finish, and is full of power and punch, though it is not that easy to get right. The band will need to be tight, and the Trumpet section have some quick unison lines to get their fingers around. Precision is needed, else things can get messy. We have notated Ms Coles' vocal line "as sung", including the little scat towards the end of the instrumental bridge, and have scored in the muted Trumpet solo at the close too. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is F, modulating to Gb in the final chorus.
