Description:

It's Been a Long Long Time - Harry James vocal big band chart. A beautiful ballad from the great co-operative writing team of Sammy Cahn & Jule Styne, this chart was made famous by Harry James and features your lead Trumpet, lead Alto and naturally your singer too. We have written out HJ's solo and Willie Smith's alto solo in full, and have kept the chart true to the James original, with the exception of re-scoring the string lines back into the saxes. The chart has been graded as Medium though the lead bone has to hit a high C. Other than this, it's not that hard to play. The vocal key is C and there are no sax doubles.
