    Description

    Duke Ellington - "You Turned the Tables On Me," 4-page Hand Written Score (undated). Duke Ellington wrote and arranged his songs, and tailored them for the specific talents of his band members rather than for an anonymous horn section. In this score for "You Turned the Table on Me," baritone saxophone player Harry Carney's name is noted next to a portion of the saxophone part. Not content to perform his pieces the same way every outing, Ellington often reworked his charts to keep them fresh. As a result, the performances never grew stale, and they sounded different in the thirties than they did in the fifties, or the sixties. This score is written on the front and back of a double-paged sheet of score paper. Four lines outline the parts for sax, baritone sax, coronet, and trombone. Swingin'! This lot also includes a letter of provenance from a former librarian of the Duke Ellington Orchestra.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
