Thanks in part to a somewhat recent movie, many people know and love this song even if they aren’t from Seattle (or New York City, for that matter).

Combining elements of Lee Morgan’s Sidewinder  with this great old classic, you and your audience are certain to enjoy this fun and relaxed arrangement of It Had To Be You.

Description

It Had To Be You  by Isham Jones & Gus Kahn 🎺 ♫ arranged for vocalist + jazz septet by Rich Willey.

Fun, swinging arrangement of this great old standard by Isham Jones and Gus Kahn. Sidewinder-inspired intro before trumpet pickup, key of F.

Blowing changes include optional Sidewinder  feel in measures 5–8 and measures 21–23. The coda is based on Billie’s Bounce . . . sure to get a chuckle from hip jazz audiences.

Difficulty level medium to advanced due to chord changes for improvisation. Medium level of ability required to play ensembles. This is a 🎺 trumpeter-as-vocalist arrangement where the trumpet player can either play or sing the melody (or if you have a vocalist, the trumpet can sit out on the melody and play the first solo).

Trumpet, tenor sax, trombone and rhythm section parts come in a PDF that you’ll be able to download immediately upon submission of your order.

Here is a ♫ sound clip from a noisy New Year’s Eve party with the trumpet player singing the melody:
