Berry Jr. Gordy, Tyran Carlo: Reet Petite
Voice with big band
|Publisher||Lush Life Music|
Reet Petite is great chart for a mixed audience dance gig. It's one of those songs that gets people up on the floor almost from the very first note. Our version follows the form and structure of the Jackie Wilson hit, though we have written it for full big band instrumentation. The brass lines are not demanding, with lead Trumpet only written to B, and lead Trombone to F. The vocal chart is written "as-sung" by Wilson and there are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is F throughout. An easy to play, fun chart.
