Almost Like Being in Love

From the musical

Brigadoon



Music by Frederick Loewe, Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

Originally Performed by Frank Sinatra

The song was sung by David Brooks in the 1947 Broadway production. It was later performed in the 1954 film version by Gene Kelly. There were three hit versions of the song in the United States in 1947. Frank Sinatra's version was the highest charting at no. 20. Mildred Bailey and Mary Martin both charted with the song at no. 21 that year.

Nat King Cole recorded more than one version of the song, including a later version that was used as the closing song in the 1993 movie Groundhog Day which starred Bill Murray. Cole's version, in the key of G major like the original, features a ii–V–I turnaround (2-5-1) in G, a pair of similar 2-5-1 sequences in E major and D major for the bridge, after which it raises the refrain a half-step with a 2-5-1 in A flat major.

Frank Sinatra rerecorded the song for his 1961 album Come Swing With Me; this is the version generally heard today. The song was also made popular by Shirley Bassey. Like Judy Garland, Bassey performed this song as a medley with the song, "This Can't Be Love".

Various Arrangers : Romantic Ballads for Mixed Jazz Voices Vol 1

"Almost Like Being in Love" - This Lerner and Loewe hit is an American classic. It is set here as an updated a cappella version by Darmon Meader for the New York Voices - an amazing vocal jazz arrangement not to be missed. Beginning with solo and backing vocals, it soon takes off in a bright, happy bounce. "Tenderly" - Surround your audience in a tapestry of sound with this a cappella ballad setting of the great American standard from 1946. The jazz vocals are relatively accessible, but offer plenty of opportunities to develop blend, style and intonation. Wonderful competition piece or as an encore for a concert choir! "Never Let Me Go" - Made famous by the legendary Dinah Washington, this deeply expressive standard is richly arranged for unaccompanied jazz choir. Expanded ranges and divisi provide challenge, but offer rewards for the advanced group. "My One and Only Love" - Beautiful a cappella textures shape this classic Sinatra ballad into a fantastic vocal jazz showpiece! From full homophonic harmonies to solo lines with vocal accompaniment, this setting is a compelling spectrum of sound.

Songlist: Almost Like Being in Love, Tenderly, Never Let Me Go, My One and Only Love
