Shine On Harvest Moon


Shine On Harvest Moon has been transcribed and adapted by Jon Haprin from the Nelson Riddle chart written for Rosemary Clooney's 1961 album "Rosie Solves the Swingin' Riddle". The string lines have been re-scored into the band, making the chart playable with a standard 5444 line-up. The 4th trombone part is scored for a bass trombone and there is some doubling required in the reeds: Both Altos double Flute, though the Tenor 1 part is cross-cued with the Alto 2 flute part (and the Alto 2 with the Tenor 1 sax lines) to allow some flexibility. Tenor 2 doubles Clarinet for the intro. The vocal line is scored "as sung" by Ms Clooney and the vocal key is Db modulating to D.
