Wonderland by Night

“Wonderland by Night” was #1 hit for Bert Kaempfert in 1961. I was a bit surprised when I ran across this tune. I’m not sure I remember it. Also, by this time I would have thought I’d found all the #1 instrumentals from the era.

The original is very slow and features a juicy, romantic trumpet as the lead instrument. My arrangement has most of the same parts but is faster and features guitars — the result is a much more “country” vibe.
