Phil Mattson’ s arrangement of this long time standard was adapted from the Nelson Riddle – Frank Sinatra version. The opening verse is sung by unison male voices, followed by the second verse rendered by unison female voices. This is an excellent chart to teach stylistic concepts to your young vocal ensemble. This chart works best if performed with a rhythm section as opposed to merely piano accompaniment. Mattson’s arrangement is very accessible to the young vocal jazz ensembles.
