Description:Fly Me to the Moon - Ted Heath. Here is Heath's beautifully lush version of Fly Me to the Moon, scored as a slow Alto Sax feature ballad. The Alto solo line is written out in full, as originally played (possibly by Ronnie Chamberlain), and the rest of the band backs the soloist all the way without ever obscuring the solo line. The brass ranges are very moderate, with lead Trumpet to B and lead Trombone to G#. All of the important little rhythm licks and fills are written in too, allowing your band to produce an authentic performance. There are no sax doubles.
