Description:Taking a Chance on Love - Frank Sinatra. Another jewel of a chart from the Sinatra Riddle 1954 album "Swing Easy". After just a three note intro we're right into the chart, with the rhythm section providing a very structured backing to the first 16 measures of the vocal chorus. We have written these parts "as played", so your players can re-create the original feel. Most of the band backings are carried by the reeds and trombones, with the trumpets mostly providing muted background figures. We have scored this chart for 5/4/4/4, with the 4th trombone a Bass. There are no sax doubles and the vocal keys are Bb, modulating to B for the final chorus.
