I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'


This is the actual Helen O'Connell version from her "Here's Helen" album, as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. This chart is not a transcription and has been recreated from the original manuscripts. It is an up-tempo swinger opening in the key of C and modulating to Db and D for the instrumental passages, with the vocalist returning in D and moving to Eb for the shout. The band parts, whilst not hard, do need to be played with good sectional discipline in order to pack the punch that the arrangement demands. The chart is written for 5/4/4/4 with no Sax doubles. The vocal keys are C, D and Eb.
