Description:Arguably the most famous chart from the Bunny Berigan band, “I Can’t Get Started” is scored as a lush ballad featuring, in equal part, your singer and Trumpet soloist. The Trumpet part is quite tricky and uses the full range of the instrument. The band backings behind both singer and soloist are very straightforward, and there are no sax doubles. The vocal key is C.
