The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else by The Jimmie Lunceford Big Band. Arranged by Tadd Dameron. For big band. Swing, Jazz. Medium Difficult. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8883S). Tadd Dameron was one of the most influential composer/arrangers in American music. Born in 1917, he wrote for bands led by Jimmie Lunceford, Count Basie, Billy Eckstine (many original compositions later performed by the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra were originally written for Eckstine), Ted Heath and Tommy Dorsey. He also arranged for Sarah Vaughan, Pearl Bailey and the underrated Kay Penton. Dameron led various groups for live gigs and recordings, and the musicians he played with constituted a who’s who of jazz. At one time or another his ensembles included Fats Navarro, Freddie Webster, Charlie Rouse, Kenny Clarke, Kai Winding, Wardell Gray, J.J. Johnson, Dexter Gordon, Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, John Coltrane and Clifford Brown. This arrangement of the Isham Jones/Gus Kahn standard was most likely written in 1942 as at that time Tadd Dameron was writing for the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra. The arrangement was never recorded, but, due to the wear on the parts, it was clearly performed live on numerous occasions. It is not entirely clear as to why the arrangement wasn't recorded, though it is possible that the reason is that it was written during the recording ban. The next time the Lunceford ensemble would be in the studio for a recording date wasn't until February 1944 - almost two years after this arrangement was most likely written. Dameron crafted a swinging, interesting take on the standard. The trombone section states the melody for the first chorus with nice ensemble hits and backgrounds. The arrangement moves through three key centers: G, Eb, and Gb. While there are no lengthy solos (tenor sax has a 4-bar cameo solo), there is a great 1/2 chorus saxophone soli. This arrangement should appeal to medium level groups as the ranges are modest. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to C6; Trombone 1: to Bb4.

My Blue Heaven by The Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof and Rob DuBoff. Arranged by Sy Oliver. For big band with vocal trio. Swing, Jazz. Medium. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9283S). Sy Oliver was the chief arranger for the Jimmie Lunceford band from 1934 though 1939. Many of Sy’s compositions and arrangements are classics, which he wrote and copied for the princely sum of $2.50! In December of 1935, the Lunceford organization recorded one of the great hits of the swing era, My Blue Heaven, which had been popular several years earlier. Oliver was a master at taking older songs and reinvigorating them for Lunceford, and later the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. My Blue Heaven stayed in the Lunceford band book until the band broke up in the early fifties. Sometime in the late 1940s, several Lunceford classics were recopied, no doubt because the original parts were worn out, torn up, or simply marked up and unreadable. This edition of My Blue Heaven derives from these new parts, indicating how the band played this classic years after the original recording. Jeff Sultanof transcribed parts that were missing, as well as changing some things back to the way the band originally played this in 1935. The vocal parts were originally sung by members of the band. 3 separate vocal parts have been provided (lead vocal accompanied by a vocal duet). This is a classic arrangement from the Swing Era.
