Description:This patriotic wartime tune was originally done by Glenn Miller with Tex Beneke and Marion Hutton and the Modernaires supplying the vocals.This is a medium swing tempo chart that kicks. We have scored the chart for Male & Female vocalist with a 4-piece backing group, though the arrangement works well as a boy girl duet or as a solo vocal (we have included a solo vocal sheet in the pack). The Tenor sax line that would have been missing when Beneke took the vocal is scored back in, thereby keeping your section complete. This chart is true to the Bill Finegan original, and there are no sax doubles. Trumpets 2,3 & 4 need to be able to reach high C for the unison passage before the Tenor solo in the last chorus.
