Description:Learning the Blues - Frank Sinatra. Here is our transcription of Frank Sinatra's great rendition of "Learnin' the Blues", as performed with the Count Basie band. The original arrangement was by Neal Hefti. Aside from Sinatra's vocal interpretation (the vocal part of this chart is written "as sung" by FS) the chart features some neat cameo Piano work, a fine instrumental chorus which itself features two muted Trumpet solos (improvised from the chords provided) and some unexpected Flute fills (scored on Tenor 1 but cued on Alto 1) towards the close. Aside from this Flute work there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key is Bb throughout.
