Description:An Occasional Man : Julie London. Transcribed from her 1961 Liberty Records album "Whatever Julie Wants", this is a very cool chart that switches effortlessly between swing and beguine feels. Overall the chart is relaxed, breezy and nicely laid-back. The vocal part is scored "as sung" by Julie London and we have even scored in the subtle background Piano licks that help give the chart its unique flavour. We have removed the original string lines and have re-scored them back into the band, whilst maintaining the integrity of the original concept. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is C throughout.
