Turn your female vocalist loose on this new and fresh big band version of “Beyond the Sea” – the 1946 contemporary pop romantic love song by Jack Lawrence with music from Charles Trenet and Albert Lasry. The powerhouse intro by the brass quickly settles into a nice medium-swing groove by the rhythm section and, with tasty piano fills, the stage is set for your singer to tell the story. As the verses and choruses go through the traditional key changes, the mood and energy continues to build into a roaring ensemble section; then, like the waves in the sea, the dynamics come down and rise again to a climatic but surprising end. As performed by the Bruce Harper Big Band in Las Vegas, NV featuring Elisa Fiorello on vocal.
Arranged for 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, drums and vocal. Key of C to start, finally ending in Db.
