If I Should Lose You by Robin & Rainger ♫ 🎺 Vocalist + Quintet, arranged by Rich Willey.
A hard-swinging arrangement of this great old standard by Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger. Attention-grabbing intro before trumpet or vocalist pickup. Melody is arranged once at the beginning with a completely different second melody arrangement for the out-chorus. There is a full-chorus soli section that can be inserted between soloists or omitted if your ensemble finds it to be too challenging to play (listen to sound clip ♫ below).
Septet parts are for trumpet (🎺 = trumpet player can either play or sing the melody), alto sax, tenor sax, trombone, piano/guitar, bass and drums, and come in a PDF that you’ll be able to download immediately upon submission of your order.
106 written measures, tempo is ♩ = 148, difficulty level is advanced (challenging chord changes and inner parts on the soli section).
Trumpeter has a choice to play or sing the melody the first melody arrangement.
