Fly Me to the Moon


Transcribed by Jon Harpin from the original Quincy Jones arrangement featured on the Sinatra at the Sands album, Fly Me to the Moon is a classic Frank Sinatra chart, and a "must have" for any band's repertoire. We have added a short Piano & Bass solo in the intro, to help your singer pitch the first note, and we have augmented the Brass up to 8 voices. The solo Flute passages are written on Alto 2 and cued onto Alto 1 and Tenor 2 to give you some flexibility as to who takes the lines. We have written in the Trumpet 2 solo fills, and to add even more authenticity to the performance the vocal sheet is written "as sung" by Sinatra. The lead Trumpet range is up to high D, with the option to scream to high F#. Aside from the Flute passages there are no other Sax doubles.
