Description:Zing Went The Strings - Frank Sinatra. This chart was recorded by Frank Sinatra in December 1960 for the Ring-a-Ding album, but remained unreleased until 1990 when the master tapes of the original recording were rediscovered. This chart is a Sinatra gem, and even includes the rarely-heard opening verse. Beautifully transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the original Johhny Mandel arrangement, to incorporate the strings back into a regular big band line-up, this chart is unique and deserves a place in everyones library. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet briefly.
