Description:

Here is Glenn Miller's hit chart "I've Got a Gal In Kalamazoo", as originally recorded with Tex Beneke and the Modernaires. The only adjustments that we have made to the studio version is to add in an optional 10 measure section of the vocal verse borrowed from the Orchestra Wives version, just to introduce the vocal group a little sooner. We have also written for 4 Trombones throughout, and have maintained a full sax section behind the vocals, rather than the original 4 saxes. Vocally, the arrangement is scored for male solo plus a vocal backing group, but is singable with only one male vocalist. In the Saxes Alto 2 and Tenor 1 both double Clarinets. The vocal key is Db, modulating to Gb.
