Description:

Avalon : Natalie Cole. Written in 1920 by Jolson & DeSylva, this song was a favourite of Nat King Cole, and later featured by Natalie Cole on her 'Unforgettable' album. Ours is a transcription of her Bill Holman chart. It moves along at a very fast pace, and nimble fingers along with good playing technique are needed for your band to get it right, especially in the middle instrumental chorus. Lead Trumpet is written to high F and lead Trombone to high C. This is a punchy and very powerful arrangement full of interesting tonal colour, and makes a rousing feature for any vocalist. It is a tough chart, and we have graded it as advanced. There are no Sax doubles, and the vocal key is C throughout.
