Description:My Blue Heaven - Frank Sinatra. Here is our transcription of the Nelson Riddle chart from Frank Sinatra's "Swingin' Session" album, and it certainly does swing hard. Riddle makes great use of repeated riffs and phrases that give solidity to the chart and impart it with an early R&B feel. The written Tenor solo further emphasises this. Although scored at 180 b.p.m. you can ease the tempo back a little without detracting from the overall result. The vocal part is scored "as sung" by SInatra, and there are no sax doubles. The vocal key is Db, modulating to D for the final shout.
