Description:

Here is a hard-swinging vocal chart of Best Things In Life Are Free as performed by Jo Stafford and backed by the Paul Weston Orchestra. The chart opens with a punchy vocal verse, then a full vocal chorus supported nicely by the band backings, followed by a slick modulation to an instrumental chorus which features an ad-lib Piano solo, then an equally slick modulation to Ab for the final vocal section. The original Weston arrangement was by scored for only 5 brass, so we have augmented it to take the brass to 8 voices, making the chart playable by a full 5444 line-up. The vocal keys are G & Ab and there are no sax doubles.
