Description:Our Love Is Here To Stay : Ella Fitzgerald. This beautifully laid-back, bluesy ballad has been transcribed from the original Nelson Riddle chart written for Ella Fitzgerald's Gershwin Songbook album, with a few small changes, such as a full sax section in the intro, rather than single tenor leading over the trombones. The original studio album included strings, so this arrangement is supplied with optional string parts (Violins ABC, Viola & Cello) though the chart is perfectly playable without them. We have cued a muted Trumpet solo behind the vocal in lieu of strings. Ella performed this piece quite regularly, and adopted the same approach if no strings were present. The chart also features a muted Trumpet solo following the first vocal chorus. We have written out the original solo in full, though your player can always improvise one instead. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Bb throughout. To see all of our Ella Fitzgerald charts, please click here.
