Description:

Straighten Up and Fly Right. One of the many great songs written by Nat 'King' Cole, it has found its place as a stock tune in the repertoire of many female singers, including Linda Rondstat and Natalie Cole. This version borrows a little from the style of each. A short intro followed by the first vocal chorus, discreetly backed by the band, leads to a Nat style piano solo. The sax soli re-introduces the second vocal chorus. A muted trumpet solo continues the very laid-back feel, and the whole thing is rounded off by the vocalist. The vocal range is Middle C to C above middle C. Vocal key is F.
