This cute little swing arrangement of the Nat King Cole hit is easy and would be good for a young or new group. Kirby Shaw uses a lots of unison and the vocal harmonies are almost entirely basic jazz chords with very little divisi. There is a comic section in the middle where the meter changes to 3/4 and the singers are instructed to sing with an “operatic tone quality.” An instrumental pak and “Studio Trax Cassette” are available separately.
