Description:Don't Be That Way - Ella Fitzgerald. Lovingly transcribed by Jon Harpin from the "Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson" album, here is Ella Fitzgerald's version of the Goodman standard, Don't Be That Way. Nelson Riddle's concept is flawless, and the chart oozes class. The first chorus is only vocal and rhythm. The second chorus builds, with a call and response style of backing between the reeds and brass. The instrumental half chorus is taken at full punch, and the chart then eases down in volume to the end of the piece, to end with cameo Bass Trombone and Drum solos. The vocal key is Ab throughout, and we have written the vocal part 'as-sung' by Ella.
