Love Walked In


Love Walked In has been transcribed by Jon Harpin from the collaborative Fank Sinatra / Billy May album Swing Along With Me on Sinatra's Reprise label. The album was later renamed to Sinatra Swings due to legal trouble with Capitol Records. The chart starts gently - just vocal and rhythm plus a cameo bass trombone solo line. Flutes over muted trumpets add a bit of colour, though if your 2nd alto & 1st tenor don't double flutes their absence won't really be missed. These flute lines are also cued on the A1 and T2 parts. The original May chart had clarinets at this point too, though we have removed them for simplicity. A couple of great trumpet-over-sax section shouts punctuate the vocal lines and the chart winds down with an atypically quiet finish - just bass, bass trombone & kit, with a piano / guitar final chord. A hard swinging chart that requires good sectional discipline to carry off. The vocal key is Db throughout.
