Description:I've Got the World On A String - Frank Sinatra vocal big band chart. This 1953 version was the first product of the Frank Sinatra / Nelson Riddle partnership at Capitol records and was a huge hit at the time, helping to relaunch Sinatra's career and give the Capitol label a big boost too. The chart is scored for a standard 5444 big band and the 4th Trombone is Bass. The vocal part is written "as sung" by Sinatra and the vocal key is D throughout. Good band rhythmic discipline is needed in order to keep the chart sounding tight, particularly in the intro and close. This chart is a "must have" for all Sinatra lovers.
