Amapola by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2105). This is the original Helen O'Connell version of Amapola taken from her 1957 album 'Green Eyes,' as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. The original Marion Evans manuscript was used, this is not a transcription. However, it has been modified slightly by the addition the 'as-played' dynamic markings on the instrument parts. In addition, the chart has been written out in full, rather than using the original DS al Coda indications. The chart calls for the entire sax sextion to double clarinets. However, an alternate set of sax parts has been included on the reverse of the originals that avoids the need for clarinet doubles, making the chart playable by an AATTB line-up throughout. The vocal key is F.

Alright, Okay, You Win by Joe Williams With Count Basie. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing Blues. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2104). This version of Alright, Okay was done by Joe Williams with the Count Basie Orchestra and it is a very dancable bouncy shuffle that has a solid pulse. There is nothing complicated about the chart and it is a fine example of how to score an arrangement to feature your vocalist. There is also a great 8 bar bridge between the vocal choruses which gives a real kick to the middle of the arrangement. The Trombones are written for 3 Tenors and a Bass, though the Bass bone is in Tenor range. The vocal key is Ab and we have scored the vocal chart to reflect Joe Williams' performance. No sax doubles. Swing Shuffle @ 145 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, C#6, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, Ab4, Eb4, C4 Vocal key: Ab; Vocal Bb2 - F4 (12 steps).

Birmingham Bounce by Charlie Shavers With Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male or female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2103). Birmingham Bounce is a postwar chart from the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, featuring the singing and fiery Trumpet of Charlie Shavers. This is a very good dance chart and it has a lot of nice features in the arrangement - Vocal stops, hand claps, powerful ensemble passages, a solo spot for Tenor and some screaming Trumpet licks too. As the name suggests, this chart really bounces along. We have rated it Medium / Advanced, as the Trumpet soloist has a written high F and the Trombones need to reach Bb. Birmingham Bounce is a refreshing change to the usual vocal fare. The key is Eb and would suit a high Baritone or an Alto. Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, Eb6 (F6 opt), Bb5, A55 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, Gb4 Vocal key Eb Male or Female Eb3 - Gb4 (10 steps).

Hey Ba Ba Re Bop by Tex Beneke. Arranged by John Ferguson. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2102). Hey! Ba Ba Re Bop! was performed by Tex Beneke, both while fronting the post-war Miller band, and with his own outfit. In many ways this chart was a portent of things to come, and bridges the gap between Swing and Rock'n' Roll. The main feature of the arrangement is the answerback between vocalist and band, and there is also solo space for Trumpet 2, and well as some great sectional interplay. All in all this chart really moves along and is perfect for dance gigs. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Db. An excellent transcription from the legendary Australian arranger, John Ferguson. Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, B5, C5, G5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, F4, E4 Vocal key Db Male Ab3 - F4 (6 steps).

(I've Got A Gal In) Kalamazoo by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins And Alan Glasscock. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2100). Here is the extended version of I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, made famous by the Glenn Miller Orchestra in the film Orchestra Wives. This chart differs significantly from the studio recorded version, and has a full chorus band intro, an interlude leading to the vocals, an extra band bridge into a vocal reprise, plus an added 24 bar band section to close. At five and a half minutes long, it's a showstopper. The arrangement is scored for male vocalist plus a backing group of 5 - ideally girl, 3 tenors and baritone, and in the Saxes Alto 2 and Tenor 1 both double Clarinets. The Tenor solo is written on the 2nd Tenor part and also cross-cued on the male vocal part. The vocal whistling in the interlude is cued on the Piano part, and we have written out the opening Trumpet solo in full. Trumpets 1-4 Eb6, Bb5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, Ab4, Ab4, F4 Male Vocal Db3 - Db4 (8 steps) Vocal key Db & Gb.

The band parts are very straightforward, there are no sax doubles and the brass ranges are moderate, making it playable by bands of all levels of ability.The vocal is a comfortable female alto key of F. If your singer likes songs that tell a story, Always True To You will be a winner.

Hard Hearted Hannah arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2095). Hard Hearted Hannah is a showstopper of a female vocal. Big, brassy and with real punch, this chart has been exquisitely transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the Julie London original. Although not long, at two minutes, it is as long as it needs to be. The brass ranges are reasonable, though the lead trumpet does hit a high E, but this is an octave double from the rest of the section and could be taken down. The string lines are re-scored into the saxes, with Alto 1 doubling Clarinet. The vocal key is F.   Trumpets 1-4: E6, B5, A5, E5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, Eb4, C4 Vocal key: F; Female F3-C5 (12 steps).

My Heart Belongs To Daddy by Julie London. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2094). Cole Porter penned some fabulous songs. My Heart Belongs to Daddy was written for the 1938 musical, Leave it to Me, and has a wonderfully naughty lyric where 'daddy' means 'sugar daddy'. Our arrangement is based on that recorded by Julie London, where her smoky-voiced style perfectly suits the tune. The chart is scored for 5,4,4,4 and is not too demanding on the brass, plus there are no sax doubles either. If your singer has a low Alto range, then this number would suit her perfectly. The vocal key is F minor. Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, Ab5, Ab5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, F4, Db4, C4 Vocal key: Fm Female Vocal: F3 - A4 (11 steps).

My Kind Of Town by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Billy May, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2092). This Jimmy Van Heusen / Sammy Cahn tune was originally written for the Rat-Packesque film 'Robin and the Seven Hoods'. Wonderfully melodic and visually exciting in concert, it was Sinatra's theme tune for some 15 years, his show-stopper and frequent show-ender. This version is transcribed from Billy May's version from Sinatra at the Sands with the Basie Band. It's all here - the creamy opening verse with the lush brass voicings leading into the punchy swing of the main vocal, with the successive modulations from F to G to Ab and the powerhouse modal riffs to finish. Guaranteed to be a winner in any concert or gig. The lead Alto doubles Flute, but other than this there are no Sax doubles.Swing @ 100, 80 & 180 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, E6, Bb5, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, A4, A4 Vocal keys: F/G/Ab Male Vocal G2 - F4 (13 steps).

My Old Man arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2087). My Old Man is a traditional Cockney song from the east end of London which we have taken and turned into a big swinging vocal chart. This number is fun and makes a great set-closer, or a sing-along for the crowd. Whilst it won't win any prizes for musical sophistication, it will win the hearts and minds of your listeners! Although quite short, at a fraction over two minutes, we have written an option al D.C. into the chart, should the crowd want more. The vocal here is sung humourously by Nou Nou in her best Cockney chant! Brass ranges are moderate and there are no Sax doubles. Enjoy!Swing @ 190 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, A5, A5, A5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, E4 Vocals: Female A3 - C5.

This is the Benny Goodman version of Amapola, with Helen Forrest taking the vocal. A delightful tune, well delivered, and of course with a Clarinet solo from the great man himself. This chart is as per the original version, and we have scored the Saxes AATT plus a Clarinet Solo part. The trick with this chart is not to play it too fast. It just chugs along and swings all the way. If you would like to have an instrumental-only version of the chart please contact us and, if the demand is high enough, we'll do it for you. Trumpets 1-4 A5, G5, G5, G5 Trombones 1-4 G4, G4, F4, F4 Vocals Female A3 - Bb4.

I Get A Kick Out Of You by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Neal Hefti, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2085). Taken down from Sinatra's 1962 Reprise recording 'Sinatra and Swingin' Brass,' I Get a Kick Out of You has become a Sinatra classic and a much requested tune. The original arrangement was done by Neal Hefti (a familiar name to Count Basie fans) and his style is clearly apparent throughout the chart. Jon Harpin has produced a superb recreation of the original, and it swings from start to finish. We have written out Sinatra's vocal line, for those of you who wish to emulate the master. The chart is technically not that difficult, but needs crispness and precision to make it come alive. The Trombones are scored for 3 Tenors and Bass, and there are no Sax doubles. Swing @ 175 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, Bb5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, G4, F4, D4 Vocal key: Db,D; Male Bb2 - E4 (10 steps).

Why Don't You Do Right by Peggy Lee With Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2081). This version of Why Don't You Do Right was recorded in 1942 by Peggy Lee during her stay with the Benny Goodman band and Peggy made this song her own. Goodman's chart has been faithfully transcribed here, including all of the Clarinet licks and solos, but the brass has been expanded from the original 6 up to 8. The sax parts are written for Solo Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors & Baritone though an an extra Alto sax part (the Tenor 1 part, written for Alto) is included to give you a bit more flexibility in the section. The brass ranges are very moderate, and aside from the Clarinet solos there are no surprises, so the chart is very playable. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, Bb5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, F4, D4, D4 Vocal key: F - Female Vocal A3 - D5 (10 steps).

Let Me Off Uptown by Anita O'Day With Gene Krupa. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2080). Let Me Off Uptown was a huge hit for the Krupa band, featuring Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge. The chart is a medium tempo swing duet between the two and has some lovely spoken interplay between them. We realize than not many bands have trumpet players who also sing, so we have written both vocal lines on one part, and cross-cued the male vocal onto the 2nd trumpet part just in case. This chart is also a trumpet feature, with the 2nd trumpet taking a screaming solo when the vocals are over. Eldridge's original version (which we have written out in full) goes up to a super G, though we have provided chords should your player wish to improvise. All 3 other trumpets are written to high Eb during a unison run up to the T2 solo, but 3 & 4 can be dropped an octave if they can't reach the range. This chart would be a medium if the soloist improvises and T3& 4 drop the octave. There are no sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, G6, Eb6, Eb6 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Gb4, Eb4, C4 Vocal key Db - Female G3-Bb4. Male mostly spoken.

When Johnny Comes Marching Home by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2078). This patriotic wartime tune was originally done by Glenn Miller with Tex Beneke and Marion Hutton and the Modernaires supplying the vocals.This is a medium swing tempo chart that kicks. We have scored the chart for Male & Female vocalist with a 4-piece backing group, though the arrangement works well as a boy girl duet or as a solo vocal (we have included a solo vocal sheet in the pack). The Tenor sax line that would have been missing when Beneke took the vocal is scored back in, thereby keeping your section complete. This chart is true to the Bill Finegan original, and there are no sax doubles. Trumpets 2,3 & 4 need to be able to reach high C for the unison passage before the Tenor solo in the last chorus. Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, C6, C6 Trombones 1-4: C5, Gb4, Eb4, A3 Vocal key: G [Female Vocal] B3-B4 [Male Vocal] B2-B3.

That's My Style by Peggy Lee. Arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2076). That's My Style is the late, great Peggy Lee at her laid back best. This tune is so relaxed it is almost horizontal, yet the band's support of the vocalist is just perfect. Loud and snappy where it needs to be, yet in places as laconic as the vocal itself. The tempo is moderate and the brass ranges not overly demanding, though the band needs to be tight to do the chart justice. No sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 Db6, Bb5, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4 A4, F4, D4, C4 Vocals Female G3 - A4.

On The Sunny Side Of The Street by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2073). Made famous by the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, our version of Sunny Side of theStreet is taken from the version done by the late great Syd Lawrence. The form and structure is based on the original Dorsey version, including the unique intro, where we have wrtten out the bass 'solo' and piano fills too. This chart is scored for a vocal quartet of either 2 female and 2 male voices, though works well with 1 girl and 3 boys. The lead Trumpet range in the last bar goes to a high F, but we've cued alternative notes which keep the range here to top C#. The audio sample is not a real recording, but will give you the essence of the chart. No sax doubles, and the brass ranges are moderate. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, C#6, Ab5, Gb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, E4, Eb4, C4 Vocal Key: Eb SATB C4, Ab3, Ab3, Eb3.

Till You Come Back To Me by Linda Eder. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2071). Originally written in 1994 for Linda Eder by Frank Wildhorn, this song is a great swinger. Starting with just vocal and rhythm section it builds and builds as more instruments are overlaid behind the vocal. Lead Alto is featured heavily, both with a 32 bar solo, and with solo fill in phrases to accompany the vocalist in the second half of the song. This tune is a good set opener and really deserves to become a standard repetoire chart. Trumpets are written high in a couple of bars, but can be played down an octave without spoiling the tune, making the ranges playable by all. Swing @ 185-190 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 F#6, D6, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4 A4, F4, D4, C4 Vocal A3-Bb4.

White Cliffs Of Dover arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2070). Immortalised by Vera Lynn in the 1940s, this tune came to symbolize hope in troubled times, though it is also a lovely melody in its own right. This arrangement is a smooth, flowing ballad in the '40s style, making full use of dynamic expression, muted and open brass, plus some Miller-voiced sax passages. Slightly nostalgic perhaps, but always popular. In the key of Ab, the vocal range is from Ab below, to C above middle C. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet, Baritone doubles Alto. The complete mp3, taken from a live gig, is courtesy of The Strayhorns, with Nou Nou on vocal. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Bb5, G5, F5, D5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, F4, Eb4, C4 Vocal ke: Ab (Ab3-C5).

Straighten Up And Fly Right by Nat King Cole And Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2049). One of the many great songs written by Nat 'King' Cole, it has found its place as a stock tune in the repertoire of many female singers, including Linda Rondstat and Natalie Cole. This version borrows a little from the style of each. A short intro followed by the first vocal chorus, discreetly backed by the band, leads to a Nat style piano solo. The sax soli re-introduces the second vocal chorus. A muted trumpet solo continues the very laid-back feel, and the whole thing is rounded off by the vocalist. The vocal range is Middle C to C above middle C. Vocal key is F. The mp3 is courtesy of the Blue Moon Big Band. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 B5,G5,E5,E5 Trombones 1-4 G4, F4, C4, C4 Vocal C4 - C5.

Sentimental Journey by Doris Day With Les Brown. Arranged by Bob Martin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2039). Co-written by Les Brown for his own Orchestra, Sentimental Journey was a great hit for Doris Day, and this version remains as the definative standard for the tune. It has to be played bluesy, laid back, softly and not too fast! The brass lines at the end of the first chorus emphasise the 'drag' and the tenor solo behind the vocal re-enforces the lazy feel. Vocally in the key of A, the range is from A below, to B above middle C. Lead alto doubles clarinet. The mp3 is courtesy of The Strayhorns, with vocalist Nou Nou, taken from a live gig. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, E5, D5 Trombones 1-4: G#4, F4, D4, B3 Vocal key A (A3 - B4).

Route 66 arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2038). Mention the words Route 66 and many people think 'Johnny B-Goode', Rock and Roll, guitar bands etc. Well, think again. Our version is written as a bouncy, but not fast, swing-shuffle that has a laid-back yet driving feel to it. We've included solo space for Tenor, Trumpet and Baritone, all backed by brass riffs that build as the solos progress. Fun and straightforward to play and good to dance to. The vocal range is Bb below middle C to D one octave above middle C. Vocal key is Eb to F. Swing 140 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, E5, E5 Trombones 1-4: G4, E4, D4.

Opus 1 (One) by Gene Krupa With Anita O'Day. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2034). A classic from the pen of Sy Oliver, this is the vocal version that Anita O'Day recorded with Gene Krupa, and is a mix of powerhouse swing that you would expect from Krupa's band, and a laid-back, slightly humourous vocal chorus from O'Day. It features a blasting Trumpet solo near the end, and a wonderfully conceived modulation into the vocal chorus. We have written out the Trumpet solo, and the little Piano fill-in solo in the intro too. This is a medium to advanced chart in terms of difficulty, because the Trumpet solo screams up to a high E, and 1st and 2nd Trombones have to pick a top D out of the air at one point. Other than that, it is pretty straight ahead, and there are no sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4: D6, E6, B5, B5 Trombones 1-4: D5, D5, A4, Ab4 Vocal key D (Female A3 - B4).
