Cole Porter composed this song in 1935 during a cruise in thesouth Pacific. At first, the song gained little popularity, until bandleaderArtie Shaw recorded a swing version. Even though the song was released on the"B" side of a record, Begin the Beguine became a best-selling recordin 1938, peaking at no. 3, and launched Shaw and his band to fame andpopularity. In short order, all the major big bands recorded it, includingHarry James, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller. Fred Astaire andEleanor Powell danced to it in the film Broadway Melody of 1940. And, as avocal, it has been sung by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and ElvisPresley. Even today, Begin the Beguine is remembered as one of the most iconicsongs of the Big Band Era. This arrangement will be a great addition to yourpopular music repertoire.
