Description:Indian Summer - Glenn Miller vocal chart for big band. The tune is a hauntingly beautiful melody from the pen of Victor Herbert. Written in 1919 under the original title of "An American Idyll", the lyric was added in 1939 by Al Dubin. The version that we offer here is our transcription of the Glenn Miller chart, featuring a young Ray Eberle. The only adaptation that we have made to the chart is to score it for a full 8 piece brass section (from the original 6 employed by the early Miller band). The vocal part is scored "as sung" by Eberle and Tex Beneke's short Tenor solos are written out "as played" too. The saxes are scored for CAATT throughout and the vocal key is C.
