Description:

Taking a Chance on Love was written in 1940, and despite being a last minute inclusion for the Broadway musical "Cabin in the Sky" it became the show's most enduring hit. Benny Goodman recorded this version in 1940, featuring the vocal of Helen Forrest. It was re-released in 1943 and charted for 14 weeks including 3 weeks at the number one spot. We have adapted Fletcher Henderson's original Goodman chart up to 8 brass, and have scored the reeds CAATT. There are no sax doubles, the brass ranges are moderate and the short Tenor solo and BG's cameo solos are written out "as-played". The chart opens in the key of D, modulates to A for the vocal, with the final chorus in Gb.
