Description:Why Don't You Do Right - Julie London. Whilst this song is usually associated with Peggy Lee and the Benny Goodman band (also available in our catalogue - code 2081), this Julie London version is a refreshing alternative. It suits a singer who has a sultry, laid-back vocal approach. The band backings are scored to give good support to the vocalist and the band itself takes an eight measure ensemble passage in between the vocal choruses. The brass ranges are moderate and there are no sax doubles. The vocal key is Bbm throughout.
