Mambo Italiano


We have transcribed this chart from the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook". We think that the arrangement packs more punch than Ms Clooney's original, and will be an almost guaranteed hit at any concert or dance. The rhythm parts are written out, though your players can lay down their own interpretations if preferred. We have scored the backing vocals into the sax parts, and if your players aren't comfortable singing they can simply play the notes instead. This is a high energy latin chart, and a great addition to any library. The vocal key is Gm, modulating to Abm for the final chorus. The range is such that it is quite singable by most male singers too. There are no sax doubles.
