Around The World


This version of Around the World was recorded by Matt Monro, and has been transcribed for you by Jon Harpin. The chart opens as an up-tempo swinger, full of great rhythmic punctuations from the band in support of the vocalist in the first chorus. A band tutti follows, which leads to a one step up modulation, then a half-tempo feel change to bring the chart to a rousing finish. The original studio recording had a few measures scored for strings. We have written these back into the saxes, so the lead Alto is required to double clarinet. There are no other sax doubles, and the 4th Trombone is written for bass. The vocal keys are Bb modulating to C.
