Description:"Ida" is an early Billy May chart for the Glenn Miller orchestra which shows May's fine early writing style at its best. We have scored the male vocal independently from Beneke's original Tenor part, thereby keeping the integrity of the sax section, and have written out his original Tenor solo "as-played". Aside from a 4 measure section by Alto 1 on Clarinet at the end of the chart there are no sax doubles. The vocal key is Ab.
