Star Eyes


This is the genuine Helen O'Connell version from her "Green Eyes" album. This chart is not a transcription and has been recreated from the original manuscripts, although we have shortened the ending by 4 measures (she performed it like this in her concerts and radio broadcasts). However, what you get with this chart is actually 2 charts in one package. The album chart was scored for 5 woodwind (3 Clarinets all doubling Flute and 2 Bass Clarinets) a full string section and 4 rhythm. All of these parts are included, so you can recreate the O'Connell original. We recognise that not all bands have strings to call on, or Sax players who double Flutes and Clarinets, so we have included an alternate arrangement in the pack in which we have rescored the chart for a conventional 5/4/4/4 big band. In this version Alto 1 doubles Clarinet. You get a full score of each version too.
