Description:

Here is Bobby Darin's great take on My Gal Sal, a song normally associated with a more trad / dixie setting. This version is a mid-tempo swinger that features the vocalist all the way. Unusually, the singer has to pitch the first note, (so a cue from your pianist might help out) and what sounds like the intro is actually the first 8 of the chorus. A novel concept which works really well. Although at just over two minutes it's not a long chart, the length is perfect for the arrangement. We have written the vocal part "as sung" by Darin. Lead Alto is written to double flute at the start, and we have cross-cued the Piano part in case your Alto player doesn't double Flute. The vocal key is F.
