Description:Ours is the great Johnny Mercer & Margaret Whiting version of this classic vocal duet. He want's her to stay, she want's to play hard to get. The chart itself relies on the interplay and chemistry between your two vocalists. The band backings are easy and add just the right amount of punch when needed. In this arrangement the Saxes are all written to play Clarinets, but recognising that not all sax players double Clarinets we have double-sided all of the sax parts, so that one side is as written and the reverse side is scored for a regular sax section. This way you will have more flexibility. The brass ranges are moderate and the chart is very playable and makes a great vocal feature.
