Lover Come Back to Me


Lover Come Back to Me is generally played at a fairly brisk pace. However, this rare chart from the Artie Shaw book takes the tune at a pretty relaxed tempo which allows all of the harmonic structures in the chart to shine through. The arrangement features solos for Piano, Clarinet, Tenor & Trumpet, and the Sax team have a lot of tightly scored soli sectional work too. As the solo Clarinet part is only really involved at the start of the arrangement we have cued in the Tenor & Trumpet solos onto the part, so you can make more of a Clarinet feature out of the chart. Reeds are written for CAATT and we have added an optional Baritone part in case your band wishes to use the chart as a Clarinet soloist feature backed by full band. All of the solos are transcribed as originally played, though your players can improvise from the chords provided.
