Description:Orange Coloured Sky was covered well by Natalie Cole several years back, and our version sticks to the structure of this version, though in the key of F, making it more singer-friendly. It opens with an 8 bar band intro followed by the vocal chorus, with all of the expected powerful band hits behind the "Flash, Bam, Alakazam" vocal. A band interlude follows the chorus, with the vocalist returning for the middle 8 and final vocal half chorus. Jon Harpin has done a masterly job of arranging so that the band fully supports the vocalist, without overpowering at any time. His choice of harmony and instrumental voicing gives this chart a refreshing contemporary kick. We do not have a recording of this fine arrangement to offer you, but rest assured that you can be confident that this chart oozes quality and is worthy of a place in any library.
