At Last


Here is Glenn Miller's beautiful vocal ballad, At Last. The Miller band had several versions of this chart, and ours is drawn from the version in the film 'Orchestra Wives'. Whilst it is not the complete film version, with both male and female vocal, it has the same dramatic opening with Billy May's trumpet solo, then into the Sax soli, followed by a Trombone soli in even time, accompanied by Piano obligato. Then follows the modulation into the vocal chorus (in the key of A) and final band flourish. There is no audio file here, but for those of you who know the film, the above description should tell you all you need to know!! Lead Alto in on Clarinet throughout, and Baritone doubles Alto. The Trumpet ranges are very moderate, but because the lead Trombone reaches a high C we have graded this arrangement as Medium. A fabulous chart from Alan Glasscock which will give your band the authentic Miller sound.
