"Let's Do It"

as performed by the Benny Goodman Orchestra w/ Peggy Lee
Instrumentation: Big Band
Level: 2
Notes: The lead trumpet part here is tough for a 2 but overall this is an easy grooving arrangement that is one of the few swing era vocal charts to feature the singer fully throughout the form. Peggy Lee's cool performance on this recording brought the tune to a new height, with a swinging even-tempered arrangement to contrast and support her. The lead trumpet part here is almost a 3, but otherwise this is a solid 2. A fair warning, Cole Porter's original lyrics - heard in the recording but edited in the lyric page you will get - are very dated and he himself later apologized for not realizing that the language was insensitive. He later changed them to what you'll see in the lyric page. Vocal range is Bb3 to A4/C5.
