Description:It's Only A Paper Moon - Ella Fitzgerald. Transcribed from her Harold Arlen songbook album, this fabulous Ella chart was originally arranged by the late, great Billy May and it swings like crazy from start to finish. His use of the unison sax motif makes this chart instantly recognisable, and audiences will love it from the very first note. We have written out the vocal part "as sung" by Ella, though the short Tenor solo is to be improvised from the chords provided. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Bb throughout.
