In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening


Taken from the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook" this chart is a punchy up-tempo swinger, and an out-and-out vocal feature, with no solo space in the band backings, aside from four little accented Piano answerbacks in the closing of the chart, and some solo Bass behind the vocal after the modulation. The band's backing phrases require precision and tightness, and we have written the required articulations on all of the parts, so your players will be in no doubt as to what is required. Midler's original had some String lines. We have incorporated the flavour of these lines into the Sax section, but written them as "optional subtones". The vocal part is notated "as-sung" by Ms Midler, and the vocal keys are C, modulating to Db. There are no sax doubles.
