Description:

This haunting tune was written by Meredith Willson for the 1957 show 'The Music Man'. Our transcription is of the Helen O'Connell version, originally recorded in 1963 on the Cameo record label for the album 'An Era Reborn'. O'Connell achieved fame with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra (Green Eyes, Tangerine, Amapola), retired in 1943 and returned to performing in 1951. This particular version of thetune is full of tonal colour and is unusual for its time, because the Sax section is scored in Miller voicing (CAATT), with a Clarinet lead throughout. The 4th Trombone is a Bass. The vocal would suit an Alto voice, and the vocal key is G.
