Lonely Moments by Mary Lou Williams. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. For big band. Written for Duke Ellington. Jazz, Swing. Difficult. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8776). Mary Lou Williams left Andy Kirk's band in May of 1942, and traveled with her husband, trumpeter Shorty Baker, who was a member of Duke Ellington's band. She composed and arranged quite a few pieces for Ellington, including an arrangement of 'Blue Skies' that was recorded at Carnegie Hall (for some unknown reason Ellington introduced the piece as 'Trumpets No End'). She also composed several other pieces that were not recorded including Aries Mood (Ben Webster feature), Scorpio, and this arrangement of Lonely Moments, a version of which was recorded by Benny Goodman. Recently this arrangement has been recorded by the Dutch Jazz Orchestra on their tribute to Mary Lou Williams. We are not entirely sure why this arrangement wasn't recorded when it was written, but our guess is that it was a bit 'modern' sounding even for Duke Ellington. This is a great arrangement that features solos for trumpet and tenor saxophone.

Scorpio by Mary Lou Williams. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. For big band. Written for Duke Ellington. Jazz, Ballad. Difficult. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8775). Mary Lou Williams left Andy Kirk's band in May of 1942, and traveled with her husband, trumpeter Shorty Baker, who was a member of Duke Ellington's band. She composed and arranged quite a few pieces for Ellington, including an arrangement of 'Blue Skies' that was recorded at Carnegie Hall (for some unknown reason Ellington introduced the piece as 'Trumpets No End'). She also composed several other pieces that were not recorded including Aries Mood (Ben Webster feature), Lonely Moments (a version was recorded by Benny Goodman), and this arrangement of Scorpio, written in 1946. Recently this arrangement has been recorded by the Dutch Jazz Orchestra and the Jazz Ambassadors on their tributes to Mary Lou Williams. We are not entirely sure why this arrangement wasn't recorded when it was written, but our guess is that it was a bit 'modern' sounding even for Duke Ellington. Please note that this arrangement is not the piano piece from The Zodiac Suite that Mary Lou Williams had written at the same time. Around the same time she composed The Zodiac Suite she took some of the motivic material from the Scorpio movement and fleshed it out into a full big band arrangement to feature Jimmy Hamilton and Lawrence Brown of the Ellington band.

Values by Neil Slater. Arranged by Neil Slater. For jazz ensemble (5-5-5-5). Jazz Masters series. Concert Jazz. Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-1094). Neil Slater has created a marvelous composition. It can be heard on Lab '91, as recorded by the University of North Texas One O' Clock Lab Band. "Values" opens with a stirring, slow theme and then moves into a 6/8 section that evolves into a marvelous fugue for the wind sections. This leads into the improvised tenor saxophone solo (a bright 4/4). The full ensemble takes over for a while, leading to a return to 6/8 for a trumpet solo. The piece then returns to the slow, gorgeous ending. Neil is one of the world's most accomplished jazz ensemble composers. 5-5-5-5.

Christmas Waltz by Rob McConnell and The Boss Brass. Arranged by Rob McConnell. For big band. Bossa Nova/Swing/Ballad, Jazz. Difficult. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-7015). Here is one of the classic holiday arrangements as written by the great arranger/trombonist Rob McConnell. Featured on the 1998 Concord album Big Band Christmas, this arrangement was written to feature trumpeter Guido Basso (on flugelhorn). The arrangement begins in a light Bossa feel with reeds stating the melody. The chart then moves to a medium swing feel for the second chorus. The first part of the flugelhorn solo section was written as a colla voce in 3/4, with guitar, bass, and drums following the soloist. The arrangement stays in 3/4 until the end. Reeds double on flute, clarinet, soprano saxophone, and bass clarinet (see below). This would be a great addition to any holiday program. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to C7, Trumpet 2: to A6, Trombone 1: G4.

Just One Of Those Things by Rob McConnell and The Boss Brass. Edited by Rob DuBoff and Jeffrey Sultanof. Arranged by Rob McConnell. For big band. Swing, Jazz. Advanced. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-7041). Well, what can you say about Rob McConnell's writing that hasn't already been said? His writing is consistently interesting, surprising, and swinging. This arrangement is a perfect example of why he was one of the most important writers of the second half of the 20th Century. He takes the Cole Porter standard Just One of Those Things and turns it on its head. For the first chorus Rob took an improvised solo and harmonized it for the reeds (ala Supersax). The arrangement drops down to half time with some nice swinging figures until it gradually starts to accelerate back to tempo I. This accelerando section (16 bars) will be tricky for any band to pull off but is an amazing effect. This arrangement features solos for trumpet 5 and trombone 5 (those parts were written for Guido Basso and McConnell himself). There is no getting around the fact that this arrangement will require work from even the most experienced bands. There are reed doubles, some meter changes, tempo changes, and high range notes for brass. But, if you have the time and players this would be a standout piece for any festival or concert Ranges: Trumpet 1: to E6, Trumpet 2: to C6, Trombone 1: to Bb4.

Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.1851). (8 Brass/SATB) This arrangement is a compilation of many different Christmas songs, from God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen to Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

This chart features a cappella vocals, screaming as well as delicate brass playing and many tempo changes. This arrangement takes a great deal of versatility by the voices and the brass. This chart has a little bit of everything!
