Description:

Here is the lovely ballad The Nearness of You, as performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra, with vocal by Ray Eberly. Another lush ballad with the trademark Miller sax sound of Clarinet lead over 2 Altos and 2 Tenors, with restrained brass backings. We have rated this Easy / Medium as the lead Trombone goes up to to a high C and 2nd to an Ab (else we would rate it Easy), though we have cross-cued the Trombone phrases onto the Trumpet parts in case your bone players are not comfortable with the range. This chart is also very singable as a female vocal, as the range is from C to D one octave higher. We have also included a solo Flugel part, so you can play this chart as an instrumental. Again, an excellent transcription and a must for all Miller lovers. Sax doubles: Baritone on Alto throughout, and 2nd Alto doubles Clarinet.
