From This Moment On


We are pleased to offer you our transcription of a classic chart from the Sinatra / Riddle collaboration album "A Swingin' Affair". Unlike many Riddle charts, this one does not follow the time honoured route of interspersing the vocal choruses with an instrumental bridge. It features your vocalist all the way through, with the support from the band growing in depth and intensity from start to finish. The opening Trombone solo behind the vocal has been written out "as played", and the string lines have been removed and scored back into the reeds, making the chart playable by a standard 5444 line-up. Aside from Alto 1 leading a short 4 measure passage on Clarinet, there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key starts in F and modulates to G midway through the chart. We have also scored Sinatra's vocal line "as sung".
