Norah Jones' loping, bluesy 2007 single from "Not Too Soon" is set here for SSAA vocal jazz ensemble, and this chart aims to retain all of the quirky fun of the original recording. The singers sing a mock plunger trombone solo as a group soli section, and although ALL of your girls may not have a strong low G to end the tune, the chart puts everyone on it at once for comic effect. Sparse rhythm section figures are fully notated for clarity in communicating the unusual feel.
Fully notated piano and bass, drums
