Mambo!!! (2003) for orchestra by Thomas Oboe Lee. For Orchestra. Jazz, Latin, Romantic Period, 20th Century, 21st Century. Advanced Intermediate. Score. Published by Thomas Oboe Lee (S0.10584). Instrumentation: 2 flutes, piccolo 2 oboes 2 clarinets in Bb 2 bassoons 2 horns in F 2 trumpets in Bb 2 trombones Percussion I: clave Percussion II: triangle, small cymbal, cow-bells, tom-toms or timbales Piano Violin I Violin II Viola Cello Double bass This is a transposed score. Program notes. It is very interesting that Mambo!!! is now ten years old on the occasion of a performance by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra at the Esplanade on July 31, 2013. I wrote the work for Charles Ansbacher and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra in 2003. Since then Charles performed the work many times with the BLO. When Charles called and told me he wanted me to write a short orchestral work with a Latin American flavor, I told him that would be fabulous since I had written several works in that vein. After all, I lived in São Paulo, Brazil, during my teens. But I still had to do some research. I found a couple of mambo CDs by the inimitable Tito Puente. After a few listening sessions, I got it. So, here we have it: a TOL Mambo!!! Enjoy! About Digital Print Sheet Music Digital Print is printable sheet music available anytime, anywhere. Just purchase, print and play!

Published by Thomas Oboe Lee (S0.10433). Program note. The work, as indicated by the title, is in seven parts.

The inner sections consist of pieces inspired by and in homage to four influential and important jazz artists - a Be-bop theme in the style of Horace Silver, a jazz waltz à la Bill Evans, a bossa nova Antonio Carlos Jobim could've written, and a variation of a Jaco Pastorius punk-funk groove. The whole structure looks like this: I. Prelude: Meditative II. Post-bop: To Horace Silver III. Interlude: Chorale IV. Jazz Waltz: To Bill Evans V. Bossa Nova: To Antonio Carlos Jobim VI.

"Program notes. The samba will forever haunt my musical landscape. [I lived in Brazil during the early sixties.] Forró, pronounced ""faw-HOH,"" is a type of samba music from the Brazilian northeast - Paraiba, Pernambuco and Bahia. It is music that has its roots in African, Carribean, and European traditions. It is party music. Legend has it that the word, Forró, came from a bastardization of the English, ""For all!"" As in, ""this is a party for all, for everyone!"" Traditionally, the forró was played by a trio - accordion, triangle and small bass drum. Nowadays, it is often supplemented by modern instruments - woodwinds, brass, keyboards, electric guitar, bass and trap drums. ".

Morango ... almost a tango, full score by Thomas Oboe Lee. For String Quartet. Jazz, Latin, Romantic Period, 20th Century, 21st Century. Advanced Intermediate. Score. Published by Thomas Oboe Lee (S0.9516). "Program note. Morango ... almost a tango (1983) is about to become a teenager on March 16, 1996. Yikes!!! It is amazing that the work was conceived twelve years ago!!! Originally, it was just a 32-bar jazz tune I performed every Sunday night with the Moon Unit at the 1369 Jazz Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1980-1984. The string quartet version, although written for the Kronos Quartet, was premiered at ""Concert X"" by the Composers in Red Sneakers in Sanders Theater, Cambridge, Massachusetts, on July 21, 1983. The ""Red Sneakers String Quartet"" comprised of Thal Aylward, Melissa Howe, Frank Grimes and Sandy Kiefer. Richard Buell reported in the Boston Globe a few days later that the ""doleful Morango ... almost a tango got a lot of mileage out of a stubborn, almost unchanging cello line and the elaborations above it."" The original program note read, "" Last summer in Vermont I met Gustavo Moretto, an Argentine composer, who taught me the finer and more beautiful aspects of the Tango. In my modest way, as someone looking in from the outside, I created Morango ... almost a tango - a bastardized version of the 'real thing.' Morango ... is also intrinsically connected to Kate Moran, a sometimes painter ... to whom it is dedicated. The work is played con sordino throughout. I hope the sirens next door don't intrude too much. But then again, John Cage would be delighted."" Eventually, the Kronos got around to performing it on tour in Europe in 1986. When they played it as an encore in Italy at the American Academy in Rome, Mya Tannenbaum of the Corriere Della Sera wrote, ""Non sono mancati i bis. Un richiamo al sex appeal del vecchio tango da parte di un giovane «premio Roma», Tom Lee."" Soon after, back in the States, the Kronos performed it at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York. John Rockwell wrote in the New York Times, "" ... a soulfully beautiful score by Thomas Oboe Lee."" Three months later the Kronos recorded it on their Nonesuch CD, ""White Man Sleeps."" Many other string quartets, both here and abroad, have since added the work to their repertory. The Lydian String Quartet, especially, have taken the work on their concert tours in the United States, Europe and the former Soviet Union. It appears on a CD recorded by the Lyds in Moscow on MCA Classics. As interest in the work grew, other ensembles have requested arrangements of Morango ... There are now three other versions of the work: one for big band jazz ensemble by Ken Schaphorst, another for string orchestra commissioned by Aram Gharabekian and Sinfonova, and the third for violin and piano commissioned by the Paul Chou-Paul Salerni Duo. Of the string orchestra version, Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe wrote, ""Lee's piece, Morango ... almost a tango, is a transcription of atmospheric and elegant music originally composed for string quartet; it is as sultry as Faith Domergue in a film noir, and it steams.""

Blues Harmonica Master Class by Jerry Portnoy. For harmonica. CD box set with book. Published by Jamey Aebersold Jazz (JA.BHM). ISBN 725543002525. 10 x 6 x 1 inches. This 6''x12'' box set consists of 3 instructional CDs and an accompanying book. It is the most comprehensive & easy-to-use lesson on how to learn to play the harmonica. Portnoy, who's been in the Muddy Waters & Eric Clapton bands, realized other instructional materials put all of the explanations into the text of a book, and the accompanying sound reference consisted only of playing examples, so Jerry put everything on the CDs so you don't have to switch back & forth between the two. He starts at the very beginning on how to hold the harmonica, all the way to milking special sounds & effects out of the harp, and finally includes blues guitar jams to play along with. "The best blues harmonica instruction...bar none!" --Blues Revue Magazine.

Let's Face The Music And Dance by Ella Fitzgerald. For big band with vocal. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.LL-2296). Let's Face The Music is another priceless Ella chart, transcribed from her Irving Berlin Songbook album.

However, we have printed the reed parts double-sided with a "no double" option on the reverse, making the chart playable with a regular AATTB section.

My Gal Sal by Bobby Darin. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2365). Here is Bobby Darin's great take on My Gal Sal, a song normally associated with a more trad / dixie setting. This version is a mid-tempo swinger that features the vocalist all the way. Unusually, the singer has to pitch the first note, (so a cue from your pianist might help out) and what sounds like the intro is actually the first 8 of the chorus. A novel concept which works really well. Although at just over two minutes it's not a long chart, the length is perfect for the arrangement. We have written the vocal part "as sung" by Darin. Lead Alto is written to double flute at the start, and we have cross-cued the piano part in case your alto player doesn't double flute. The vocal key is F. Style: . Swing @ 135 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, A5, G5, D5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, E4, C4Vocal key: FVocal Range: A2 - F#4 (13 steps as sung).

Lullaby Of Broadway by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Frank Devol. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2362). Artfully transcribed by Jon Harpin from the original Fank DeVol arrangement, this Ella Fitzgerald chart swings hard from start to finish. Much use is made of unison sax & trombone riffs which add bucket loads of drive and pulse to the chart. The muted trumpet solo is writen out in full, though your player can improvise one from the chords provided. The screaming lead trumpet line (which sounds an octave above the rest of the brass) is as an optional 8va. Alto 1 doubles clarinet. The vocal keys are Bb and Eb.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: E6, C6, Bb5, Bb5Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Ab4, Ab4, Db4Vocal key: Bb-EbVocal Range: G3 - Eb5 (13 steps as sung).

Get Me To The Church On Time by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2361). We are pleased to offer Rosemary Clooney's hard-swingin', foot-tappin' version of Get Me To The Church On Time. Lovingly transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the Nelson Riddle original, this charts is a belter of a vocal number. The church / tubular bells of the Riddle original (which are pretty key to making the chart convincing) have been scored onto the piano part, and if your pianist uses a keyboard a good bell sound at the appropriate times will sound great. There are a couple of cameo solos - trumpet 2 and alto 2 on flute - both written out, though the alto 2/flute is really only optional, to add a bit of tonal color. The chart is a reasonably tough blow, but fairly straight-ahead.

All The Things You Are by Helen Forrest With Artie Shaw. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Jerry Gray. For big band with vocal. Swing. Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2358). Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Artie Shaw band, this is an accurate transcription of the original Jerry Gray concept, complete with the intro piano solo and Shaw's silky first chorus solo line. A couple of small adaptations have been made: the saxes are scored for AATTB, with Alto 1 taking the clarinet lines, baritone doubling alto (to give the correct AATT backing to the clarinet), and the brass has been augmented to 8 voices. All of the correct articulations, mute indications and dynamics are included, to enable an authentic performance. The vocal key is F and the vocal range would suit most male or female singers. The modulation into the vocal key is somewhat abrupt, so to help pitch the first vocal note the singer will need to listen to the top sax voice fairly carefully. Other than this, the chart is very playable, and the brass ranges are moderate. This is a great arrangement of a wonderful song.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . Bb5, A5, A5, D5Trombones . 1-4: .

The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2354). This beautiful Jerome Kern song was recorded by Sinatra in 1964 on the Reprise label for the "Days Of Wine & Roses" album collaboration with Nelson Riddle. We have adapted the chart by removing the strings and orchestral woodwins, making it playable with a standard 5444 band. Sinatra's vocal line is written "as-sung" by the master. Also, we have faithfully reproduced the Riddle trademark open 6:9 sax voicings, so that the chart has that real Riddle feel. We have even notated the correct articulations and dynamic changes on the parts, to make it easier for your band to give an authentic performance. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Eb modulating to E. Style: . Swing @140 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . Eb6, C5, Bb5, G5Trombones . 1-4: .

Blues In The Night by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with male/female vocal duet and backing vocal group. Swing. Advanced. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2353). Billy May wrote many outstanding charts for the Miller band, and this is one of his finest. The writing is moody, sometimes dark, but harmonically rich and full. It contains little of the trademark Miller syrup sax sweetness, yet is full of tension and emotional energy. The chart is scored for boy & girl vocal with a 4 piece vocal backing group and it won't work without them. Both altos double clarinet, and the solo trumpet fill-ins are written out in full too. This is not an easy chart to get right, but if your band has the talent to do it, your audience will really appreciate the result. The vocal key is F throughout. Style: .

Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2352). This tune was recorded by Ella for her Harold Arlen songbook album, with the original arrangement scored by Billy May. The chart has been adapted to a full 5444 line-up (from the original 5114) though the feel and flavor are true to the original. Billy May chose an innovative set of chord changes for his chart which are significantly different from Harold Arlen's concept. The result is that the chart is cool yet progressive. Whilst the band notes are easy, it will need to be sung very confidently, as the vocal line doesn't immediately sit very naturally against the band backings. It will require a bit of practice. Ella's vocal line is written as-sung, including the scat passage towards the close of the chart. The vocal key is Bb throughout, and there are no sax doubles. The original vibe solo is replaced by Piano ad-lib.

I'm Always Chasing Rainbows by Helen Forrest With Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Eddie Sauter. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2346). Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1940, this melodious tune was originally composed by Chopin (Fantasie-Impromptu Op.66) and then adapted and performed by numerous artists including Goodman, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. The melody is one of those that sticks in the mind, and naturally lends itself to arrangement. This chart is scored for female vocal plus full big band - we have augmented the Brass to 8 voices from the original 5. The arrangement opens in Db, with the Trombones taking the melody, modulates to Eb for the vocal chorus and further modulates to Bb for the final band shout. The reeds are scored for CATTB though we have included an optional Alto 2 part (a transposition of the Tenor 1 part) which then allows one of your Tenor players to take the Clarinet part instead of your lead Alto.

That's The Way He Does It by Doris Day. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2344). Recorded by Doris Day with the Lou Bring Orchestra in 1947, this chart is a really laid-back, bluesy swing ballad. The band supports the vocalist beautifully, and the underlying harmonies are rich and lush. The lyric tells the tale of a woman who seems to enjoy being treated badly by her man. Whilst it is somewhat politically incorrect in todays world, the inference can be reversed by swapping "she" for "he" and "him" for "her" in the lyric. All that aside, this chart makes for a great concert piece, or last set mood changer. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Db throughout.

However, 2 & 3 can drop an octave at this point, bringing their as-played top notes down to B and A respectively. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Bb. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: .
