Description:

This is an up-tempo, hard swinging female vocal version of Volare, and not a meek latin rendition. The chart was transcribed and adapted from a version done by the German singer & actress Yvonne Catterfeld, and the original can be found on YouTube. After a big intro (scored optional 8va for the Trumpets - great if they can handle the range) the first chorus is all vocal, lightly backed by the band. Then comes a 16 measure bridge (which is the opening verse as written originally by Domenico Modungo) followed by the second chorus, with the band backings building in intensity to the modulation (up one whole step). A final half chorus leads to a false fade-out and big finish. There are no sax doubles, and the Baritone is written to low A. The vocal keys are F modulating to G.
