Description:September in the Rain - Frank Sinatra. Here is our take on the Nelson Riddle chart for Frank Sinatra. The original chart was written to include strings, and some orchestral woodwind, so we have removed these and scored the chart for a regular 5444 line-up. However, to maintain the flavour of the wonderfully conceived original intro, both Altos double Flutes, and both Tenors double Clarinet. If your band can't manage this, don't worry. You can kick the chart off from the Trombone entry in the 5th measure. We have written out the solo muted Trumpet licks in the first chorus, and the vocal part is "as sung" by Sinatra. The 4th Trombone is Bass, though playable by a Tenor, with out of range notes taken up an octave, and the vocal key is D throughout.
