Description:This chart is an absolute vocal classic from Ray Eberle and the Modernaires with the Glenn Miller Orchestra. This fine transcription of Jerry Gray's chart is true to the original in every respect, right down the the vocal voicings, the band articulations, dynamics and phrasing marks. Although written for full big band, male vocal and 4-piece backing vocals, this arrangement will work without the vocal group, but will lose much of its flavour as a result. The reeds are scored AABBT, with both Altos doubling Clarinet.
