Anything Goes


This arrangement of Anything goes is scored as a female vocal, very much in the style of Ella Fitzgerald. The intro features the rarely heard verse before moving into swing tempo at a medium 120 beats per minute, with muted brass backing the first vocal chorus. The second chorus is led by the saxes, followed by a full ensemble leading to the vocal return for the middle eight to the end of the chorus, with a brief ensemble shout to finish. The saxes are scored to double Flute, Clarinets and Bass Clarinet for the intro, though all parts have cues for saxes which allows the chart to be played by a regular AATTB section with no doubles. Brass ranges are very moderate, with lead Trumpet to a written A and lead Trombone to G. The vocal key is Gm / G major.
