Description:

Just One Of Those Things - Frank Sinatra.  Here is Jon Harpin's transcription of "Just One Of Those Things" which is the first track on the 1954 "Swing Easy" album, the first Capitol album to feature the arrangements of Nelson Riddle. A feature of this chart is some of the deliberate dissonances between reeds and brass in the opening intro and modulation passage of the chart. Your band might need to play them a couple of times to get used to them. The chart itself has many Riddle trademarks, from well voiced punchy brass to skilfully harmonised reeds, and it shows the beginnings of what were to become Riddle hallmarks in later arrangements. Aside from a Tenor noodling behind the vocal there are no band solos and the vocal key is D, modulating to Eb.
