Description:Sunny Side of the Street : Tommy Dorsey. Made famous by the Dorsey Orchestra, our vocal chart of Sunny Side of the Street is transcribed from the one performed by the late great Syd Lawrence. The form and structure is based on the original Dorsey version, including the unique intro, where we have written out the bass 'solo' and piano fills too. This chart is scored for a vocal quartet of 2 female and 2 male voices, though it works well with 1 girl and 3 boys. The lead Trumpet range in the last bar goes to a high F, but we've cued alternative notes which keep the range here to top C#. There are no sax doubles, and the brass ranges are moderate. The vocal key is Eb throughout.
