Description:

"Soon" has been beautifully transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the original Nelson Riddle chart featured on Ella Fitzgerald's Gershwin Songbook album.The strings have been removed and rescored into the band, making the chart playable by a standard 5444 line-up. As a consequence your Alto 1 player is required to double on Clarinet. The vocal part is written "as sung" by Ella, and even all of the little drum licks and fills are written in, to help your band recreate an authentic performance. This is a rare chart of an underplayed Gershwin melody, and as such should give your singer an opportunity to perform something that's just a little bit different. The vocal key is Ab, modulating to A for the final half-chorus.
