Nearness of You, The Composed by Washington/Carmichae. Arranged by Dave Hanson. For Stage Band With Vocal. Published by Kendor Music Inc. (Catalog # 105, UPC: 822795001051)

This medium level ballad from the Paramount Picture Romance In The Dark by Ned Washington and Hoagy Carmichael provides a Neal Hefti-style accompaniment for your vocalist to interpret this chart. After the complete melodic statement, the band plays a soft shout chorus in the Basie tradition, followed by the vocalist's return to the arrangement. The ending utilizes a similar pedal point statement as in the introduction. Duration 4:55
