Call Me Darling


Taken from "Ella Swings Gently With Nelson", Call Me Darling is pure Ella at her silky best. This chart has been lovingly transcribed and adapted from the original Nelson Riddle version by Jon Harpin. The strings are now gone, rescored back into the brass, making the chart playable by a regular big band line-up. Altos 1 & 2 are written with Flute doubles, though we have included optional Alto parts that don't have the Flute lines, in case your players don't double. The Bob Cooper Tenor solo is also written out, though your player can improvise his own from the chords is preferred. The vocal part is written "as sung" by Ella and the vocal key is C throughout.
