Description:

That's The Way He Does It - Doris Day. Recorded by Doris Day with the Lou Bring Orchestra in 1947, this chart is a really laid-back, bluesy swing ballad. The band supports the vocalist beautifully, and the underlying harmonies are rich and lush. The lyric tells the tale of a woman who seems to enjoy being treated badly by her man. Whilst it is somewhat politically incorrect in todays' world, the inference can be reversed by swapping "she" for "he" and "him" for "her" in the lyric. All that aside, this chart makes for a great concert piece, or last set mood changer. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Db throughout.
