Description:The Tender Trap - Frank Sinatra. Transcribed from the original Neal Hefti chart written for Sinatra's sessions with the Count Basie orchestra, The Tender Trap is a fine example of powerful writing which supports Sinatra's crooning vocal at every turn. The band parts are not hard, and the lead Trumpet only goes to top C. We have written out the two little muted 2nd Trumpet fills "as played", and have given the correct articulation and dynamics on all of the parts, so your band can give an authentic Basie performance. There are no sax doubles.
