Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me


Written by Duke Ellington and originally entitled Concerto for Cootie, Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me has been covered by all of the great vocalists including Ella and Sinatra. This version has been transcribed from the Robbie Williams Sinatra/Martin/Davis Jr tribute album, Swing When You're Winning. The feel is almost a shuffle, and the chart has some great ensemble passages as well as a solo spot for Trumpet 2 (written out as played, with chords provided). The chart does require some top-end range from Trumpets 1 & 2 (up to a written high E) with some optional screaming from your lead player at the end of the chart. We have written in all of the dynamic markings and articulations that are so necessary to give this chart the correct balance, and have written the vocal line "as sung" by Mr. Williams. There are no sax doubles, the 4th Trombone is Bass, and the vocal Key is G.
