Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh by The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal trio [SSA]. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2008). Oh Johnny! was another early hit for the Andrews Sisters and it has been reproduced here for you. The chart has been adapted by expanding it to full big band form, up from the smaller band which was used to back the sisters. Also, the chart has been written out in the key of C, rather than the key of B which some recordings imply. The reeds are scored CAATB, though an extra tenor part - a transposition of alto 2 - has been included, making the reeds CATTB, to give you flexibility in your sax section. The vocal parts are written in for SSA voices and are 'as sung' by the Andrews Sisters. This is a really bouncy number, and great fun to play. Vocal key: C Female Vocal SSA Trio.

You're The Cream In My Coffee by The Joe Loss Orchestra. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing (Quick Step). Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1343). Transcribed and adapted from a fine version by the Joe Loss Orchestra, You're the Cream makes for a great quickstep for dancing, or a fine concert piece. The chart features an improvised piano solo (best played in a stride style, rather than over-jazzed) and a written tenor solo (to maintain the feel of the chart). The chart is up, bouncy and evokes the 30's. Lead alto doubles clarinet. Style: Swing @ 200 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, B5, B5Trombones 1-4: B4, A4, A4, E4.

This Can't Be Love by Ted Heath. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1339). The Ted Heath band was arguably the best big band from the UK and probably the only one to achieve any level of success in the USA, and it did so with superbly scored charts like this version of This Can't Be Love. Written at an up-tempo 200 b.p.m. and featuring great sectional and cross sectional writing, the chart offers a solo chorus for trumpet 2 (improvised) and one of those rarities - a written bass solo. This chart requires tightness and precision from the band, and the lead trumpet is written to high F6, hence it has been graded at the difficult level. There are no sax doubles. Style: . Swing @ 200 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . F6, A5, Ab5, Ab5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, Ab4, Ab4, E4.

I Got Rhythm by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Billy May. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1334). Charts from the Glenn Miller band are always popular, and most bands have the majority of the Miller classics in their libraries. However, from time to time we like to offer something a litte rarer and more obscure. This version of I Got Rhythm falls firmly into this category. The chart was never studio recorded by the Miller band, probably because the arrangement was too long to fit on a single record side, and only two live recordings are known to exist. This has been transcribed from the January 1942 live recording, and for all of you Miller fans out there it's a stunner. The original arrangement was by Billy May, so naturally there are a couple of cameo trumpet solos thrown in, along with tenor and alto 1 solos too. Both Altos are required to double Clarinet. This is not an easy chart by any means, but well worth the effort.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, Eb6, Bb5, Bb5Trombones 1-4: A4, Ab4, Ab4, F4.

Hors D'oeuvre by Bert Ambrose. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1333). Originally written in 1915 for solo Piano, Hors D'Oeuvre became a huge hit for both Sid Phillips and Bert Ambrose . The chart was also revived by Billy May in his Time Life Swing Era recordings. This chart (based on the Ambrose 1935 recording) recaptures the mood of the British dance band era back in the 20's and 30's. You will need a Pianist with a good right hand. A bit of stride skill with the left would be useful too. The chart also features solos (all written out) for Alto 2, Trumpet 2, Clarinet (Alto 1) and Trombone 1. In the reeds, both Altos and Tenors are required to double Clarinet. If you are ever called to play a roaring 20's style number and are bored with the Charleston, this chart will have the dance floor filled with dancers in no time. Style: . Swing @ 165 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . A5, G5, G5, GTrombones . 1-4: . C5, F4, F4, F4.

One Night Stand by Artie Shaw. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Artie Shaw. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1329). Originally released on the a-side of Shaw's March 1939 Bluebird record B-10202, One Night Stand is a Shaw arrangement in what he described as a "riff chart", being designed primarily for dancing. Nevertheless, the chart offers solo spaces for trumpet, tenor, trombone, piano and of course clarinet. All of the original solos have been written out, though your players can improvise their own from the chords if preferred. The original Shaw band chart was scored for 6 brass; this edition has been augmented to a full 8-piece section. The saxes are scored CAATT. Style: Swing @ 200 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, G5, E5, C#5Trombones 1-4: G4, G4, G4, G4.

When Buddha Smiles by Glen Gray. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Jan Savitt. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1328). Transcribed from the Jan Savitt arrangement as played by Glen Gray on the Time Life Swing Era (1939-1940) session, this is a roaring little up-tempo swing chart that pulses from start to finish. The Tenor, Trumpet and Rhythm solos are written out "as played", though your players can improvise their own if preferred. It's quite a quick tempo, but the chart is relatively simple, very playable and certainly very enjoyable. The chart opens in G, modulates to C for the unison Trombone soli and Tenor solo, and via a cleverly written descending brigde moves into Eb for the Trumpet solo. Another short bridge, taken by the rhythm section, moves the chart to Ab for the shout chorus.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C6, C6, B5, B5Trombones . 1-4: . Ab4, F4, F4, Eb.

Vilia by Artie Shaw. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Artie Shaw. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1327). Here is Artie Shaw's delightfully quirky take on Vilia, from The Merry Widow by Franz Lehar. Being a Shaw chart it naturally features clarinet, with some smooth ensemble writing and a flowing sax soli too. The brass ranges are moderate, with no hidden surprises and Shaw's clarinet solo is written out in full, though, if preferred, your player can improvise from the chords. The reeds are scored CAATT, with the 4 saxes having clarinet doubles. However, the sax parts double sided, with a "no clarinet double" option on the reverse, in case your section doesn't all double. Style: Swing @ 145 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, C4.

Lover's Leap by Les Brown. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1325). Following many requests we are pleased to offer Lover's Leap. It is an up-tempo, bouncy swing chart from the postwar Les Brown orchestra featuring alto sax, piano and a cameo solo from trumpet in the shout chorus. The band is tightly scored, and the chart needs to be played with great precision to achieve the required feel. All of the articulations have been written out in the band parts to help you achieve the right result. The sax solo is written out on alto 1 and cross-cued on alto 2 (both parts have the chords too), should you wish to feature your unsung player a bit. The piano solo is written out in full though your player can always improvise from the chords, if preferred. The final trumpet flourish is scored onto the 3rd part. There are no sax doubles. Duration: 3 minutes. Style: Swing @ 190 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, A5, E6, E5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, Bb3.

Bolero by Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Fletcher Henderson. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1322). This arrangement of Ravel's Bolero is somewhat quirky, yet is an interesting swing take on a classical tune. Goodman recorded this chart in 1939 with a band that contained a 6-piece brass section, and we have augmented it to a full 8-piece section. Aside from the solo clarinet lines, the chart has no other instrument solos. Reeds are scored CAATT, with all saxes required to double on clarinet. The Goodman solos are written out in full, as played by BG. Style: . Swing @ 170 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, A#5, G5, D#5Trombones . 1-4: . A5, G4, E4, C4.

Careless Love arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1321). This version of Careless Love was recorded in 1959 by members of the Benny Goodman Orchestra. The chart is very much in the Goodman style and features solo spots by clarinet (on alto 1), tenor and piano. The clarinet and tenor solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise from the chords if preferred. The piano solo is ad-lib, but the final 2 measure modulation phrase which leads into the final shout chorus has been written out. Although not a hard chart to play, the brass gets quite high in the shout chorus, with lead trumpet to Eb6 and lead trombone to Bb4. The reeds are scored AATTB with alto 1 taking the clarinet solo lines. Swing @ 160 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, C6, Bb5, G5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, F4, Db4.

Loch Lomond by Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Maxwell Davis. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1320). Here is a great take on that well known Scottish traditional ditty "Loch Lomond". This chart is transcribed from the version done by members of the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1959 (Crown records CLP-5090) and features solo spots for Clarinet, Trumpet and Alto. The original solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise their own from the chords provided. We have augmented the brass to the full 8 voices and have written the Clarinet lines on the Alto 1 part. Saxes are scored for A/C, A, T, T, B and aside from Alto 1 there are no other Clarinet doubles. The chart is very straighforward, though Sax intonation needs to be watched in the unison first chorus. We have graded this chart Easy / Medium rather than Easy only because the lead Trumpet needs to reach top D and lead Trombone is to Ab.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, Bb5, A5, F5Trombones . 1-4: . Ab4, F4, D4, Bb3.

Down By The Old Mill Stream by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Fletcher Henderson. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1319). Down By The Old Mill Stream was written in 1908 by Tell Taylor, and this song has over the years become a bit of a stock standard for barbershop quartets. Benny Goodman recorded this up-tempo, hard swinging version of the tune in 1939 and it makes for a great dance chart. Trombones and Saxes share the melody honours in the first chorus, the Clarinet takes centre stage for the second, Alto and Trumpet feature in the third and the whole band rips for the shout. In this last chorus all reeds are required to double Clarinet. However, we have printed the AATT parts double-sided, with "no doubling required" alternate parts on the reverse. The Alto 1 and Trumpet 1 solos are written out in full, with chords provided. Another "must have" for the Benny Goodman lovers. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C#6, C6, A5, E5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, F4, D4.

Estrellita by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1318). Benny Goodman had many huge hits, yet some of his finest works remain in relative obscurity. Estrellita can be counted in this category, yet it is an absolutely beautiful piece, with a flowing melody that once heard makes you want to hum it for hours. We have reproduced this wonderful little chart for you here, and have expanded the brass up to 8 voices (from the original 6), making it playable by a full big band line-up. We have written out BG's lines "as played" by the master, and have written out the original second chorus Piano and Tenor solos too, though your players can improvise their own if preferred. The reeds are scored for CAATT and the brass ranges are moderate too. Neat, crisp plunger work is required in the brass, to keep the backings clean and tight. This chart is highly recommended. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . B5, G5, E5, E5Trombones . 1-4: . A4, A4, A4, Bb3.

Frankie And Johnny edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Maxwell Davis. For big band. Swing. Medium Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1316). Frankie & Johnny is a lovely solo feature for Clarinet, Tenor and Trumpet. This particular version is as played by members of the Goodman orchestra and it bounces from start to finish. The opening chorus is sparse - just Clarinet & rhythm - before the chart lifts into full tutti at the first modulation. We have written out the Tenor & Trumpet solos in full, though your players can improvise their own from the chords too. The Clarinet part is written on Alto 1 and the other reeds are scored for ATTB.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . E6, C6, C6, G5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, G4.

I'll Be Seeing You by Harry James. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1313). If you are looking for a first rate ballad Trumpet feature, look no further. This Harry James chart is a cracker. We have adapted the original version to suit a standard 5444 line-up and have re-scored the original, removing the string lines, but retained the flavour by adding tin-muted trumpet lines for extra tonal colur. HJ's part is written "as played", as is the Tenor solo, though your player can improvise a solo using the chords provided. The intro is written in 3:4 time, instead of the very rubato opening of the original. Although this time signature is not strictly accurate, it makes playing the intro much easier for the Piano and Bass and will avoid performance errors. The opening Trumpet line is cued onto the Piano part too, so that your player can slot in behind it easily. This chart is big, fat and lush, and offers a chance for one of your Trumpet players to really shine as a soloist. There are no sax doubles.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C#6(G6), A5, F#5, C#5Trombones . 1-4: . B4, F#4, D#4, C#4.

Hour Of Parting by Glenn Miller. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Bill Finegan. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1308). Whilst never commercially recorded by the Miller band because the chart's playing time was too long to fit onto a 78rpm record, The Hour of Parting was an often played number in the Miller book. The original exquitite arrangement was by Bill Finegan and featured Tex Beneke's tenor. It has been recreated here for you, though the brass has been expanded to eight voices from the original six, whilst retaining the feel of the original. The as-played solos for tenor, trombone and trumpet are written out in full and the reeds are scored for CATTB/A. Miller's original section was CAATT, though a later version was CATT and baritone doubling alto. The baritone was introduced to add depth to the unison sax melody line before the bridge, though your player can stay on alto throughout if preferred. This is a hauntingly beatuiful chart which deserves a place in the band library of any lover of Miller. Style: Swing @ 100 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, A5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, Db4, Bb3.

Swing Shift by Count Basie. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Buck Clayton. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1307). This chart has been transcribed from the 1944 Lang-Worth radio aircheck that the Basie Band did, though the band also recorded an early 1940s version too. The arrangement has been modified to a full 5/4/4/4 line-up. The melody and original arrangement is by Buck Clayton, though we think that the trumpet solo in this version was taken by Harry 'Sweets' Edison. The tenor solo is by Lester Young. Both solos are written out in full "as-played", though the Basie piano solo is left for your player to improvise.This chart is a fast & furious swinger which needs some good sectional discipline if it is to be performed well. There are no sax doubles. Duration: 3 mins 30 secs / Style: Swing @ 230 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, B5, F#5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, Eb4.

Liebestraum by Tommy Dorsey. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Carmen Mastren. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1305). Liebestraum, written by Franz Liszt, became a classic chart by the Tommy Dorsey orchestra, very much in the vein of Song of India, with trombone taking the melody solo in the first chorus. The reeds are scored to all double clarinets (with bari on bass clari), but we have printed the reed parts double sided, with a "no double" option on the reverse, though alto 1 still takes the clarinet solo. The solos in this chart are written out in full (clarinet, tenor, trombone & trumpet). Your players can improvise from the chords provided, if preferred. Duration: 3 mins, 15secs / Style: Swing @ 170 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: Bb5, G5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: C5, G4, D4, Bb3.

We like to offer the rare and slightly obscure chart form time to time, and this is a great one from the Glenn Miller band. Written by Jerry Gray and Miller's long-time pianist, Chummy MacGregor, "Solid as a Stonewall" is a bouncy up-tempo swinger that works equally well in a dance or concert setting. The cameo solos for Alto and Tenor are written out "as-played", and the chart has been authentically re-created by Alan Glasscock. There are no sax doubles in this chart, which is a must-have for all Miller lovers.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . Bb5, G5, G5, G5Trombones . 1-4: . A4, F4, F4, F4.

This is a great transcription by Jon Harpin of a beautifully concieved Neal Hefti composition written as a ballad solo feature for Marshall Royal. If your band has an Alto player that you would like to showcase, this is the chart for you. The solo line is uncomplicated, the sax backings are rich and lush, and the brass lines in the middle 8 make for a brilliant dynamic contrast to the rest of the arrangement. There are no sax doubles.

I Hear You Screamin' by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by George Williams and Jerry Gray. For big band. Swing. Advanced. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1298). A rare, and very challenging chart from the Glenn Miller band, written by George Williams and Jerry Gray . This chart is quick , at 240+ beats per minute, and is best played in 2. There are ad-lib solos for Tenor, Alto, Drums and Trumpet (written on the 3rd part for a change), and a slightly hair-raising sax solo where really nimble fingers are needed. Make no mistake, this is a tough chart to play well, but will be a great addition to your Miller Library, and something a little different to play for your audiences when they call for another Miller tune. There are no sax doubles. Style: . Swing @ 240+ b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C6, A5, Eb6, Ab5Trombones . 1-4: . Ab4, G4, G4, F4.

Moten Swing by Harry James. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1292). Originally conceived as little more than a riff chart by Bennie Moten, this tune would later become a firm favorite of the Basie band. This version of Moten Swing features piano for the opening chorus before the band picks up the melody in the second chorus. Alto and tenor ad-lib solos puctuate the third chorus. The extended shout (to the finish) features some stunning dynamic contrast writing, with the band alternating 2-measure phrases (from piano to fortissimo across a 16 measure passage). The final shout builds from piano to fortissimo. Not only is this a great swing chart, it also makes a good feature for your piano player, alto 1, alto 2 and tenor 1 players. There are no sax doubles. Style: . Swing @ 135b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . F6, C6, Bb5, G5Trombones . 1-4 . C5, Ab4, Gb4, D4.
