You Turned the Tables On Me


You Turned The Tables On Me was recorded by Benny Goodman in 1936, with Helen Ward taking the vocal chorus. The arrangement was originally written for CAATT and 5 Brass. We have adapted the chart to suit a full 5444 line-up, with the Clarinet solo taken by Alto 2. The structure of the chart is reasonably straightforward. After a short (4 measure) intro the melody lines in the first chorus (in the key of F) are shared between Clarinet and reeds. The brass joins in for the last 8 measures. A brief 4 measure modulation leads to the (Db) vocal chorus, backed by muted brass and reeds. The chart rounds off with a snap modulation to Bb, led by unison Trumpets, with a final four bar ensemble to close things out. This is a joyous little chart and a must for lovers of Benny Goodman. Alto 2 doubles Clarinet and the vocal key is Db.
