Description:Ace in the Hole : Ella Fitzgerald. This song was written by Cole Porter for his 1941 musical "Let's Face It" and featured in Ella's Cole Porter Songbook album. It is an up-tempo swinger with a predominantly minor feel, and we have stayed true to the original Bregman concept by retaining the delicate Flute lines over muted Brass. The vocal line is scored "as sung" by Ella. Both Altos are written to double Flute, though we have included an additional Alto 2 part which is scored to double Clarinet instead. At two minutes this is not a long chart, though the length is perfect for the arrangement concept. A good chart for either a concert or a working gig.
