Night and Day


Here is a classy transcription of Frank Sinatra's version of Night and Day, taken down by Jon Harpin from the original Nelson Riddle chart. The Riddle touch is much in evidence, with much of the figurative writing in the style of "Under My Skin". The arrangement oozes class from start to finish. Aside from the vocalist, this chart features your Baritone Sax, Bass Trombone and lead Trombone, with the lead Alto written to double Clarinet, and the vocal part is notated "as sung" by Frank Sinatra. Brass ranges are quite high: lead Trumpet to high F, 2nd to high D and lead Trombone to Bb, so we have rated the chart as Medium Advanced. The vocal key is D, modulating to Eb.
