One of the biggest 'hits of the Fifties'!

The original French song 'La Mer' was written in 1946 by Charles Trenet.

It has been recorded by many artists, but Bobby Darin's version in big-band swing style released in 1959 is the best known.

This arrangement starts in a quietly latin beat, then builds to a swinging finish!

Another well-arranged tune in the popular series SHOWBLOW.

Five flexible parts make it approachable by small ensembles, or those with incomplete instrumentation.
