Description:Witchcraft - Helen O'Connell. This song was originally written specifically for Frank Sinatra, and later covered by other singers. This is the Helen O'Connell version which is simply stunning, and your singer will love you for having this chart in the book. The chart features your vocalist and Clarinet. It opens with a Drum / Clarinet duet in Gene Krupa / Benny Goodman style, and the band entry sets the tone for what is to follow. This chart swings like crazy from start to finish, and whilst the writing is very sophisticated, the chart has a raw, jungle energy about it. The Saxes are scored for CATTB, although we have included an extra Alto part ( a transposition of Tenor 1 ) thus allowing one of your Tenor players to take the solo Clarinet part. The vocal Key is Db throughout, and the range also makes it singable by a Male voice 8vb.
