Once Upon a Time

Wind Band

Song Arrangement





This song comes from the 1962 musical All American. The music is by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Lee Adams. The song has been covered by many major artists including Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Tony Bennett.

I confess I had not heard of it until Joanne Pullen, guest vocalist on many RAF concerts, chose to sing it on the 1997 RAF Massed Bands Tour and asked me to arrange it. It is a very attractive song and it is a shame it has fallen into relative obscurity.
