Perdido by Duke Ellington. Arranged by Klauss Lessmann. For big band. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1158). Perdido was one of Duke Ellington's early big hits. Many arrangements have been made of this chart over the years - lots of them at a flat out tempo. The Duke's version is a very laid-back swinger that chugs along in a steady groove. The chart opens with a cameo Piano solo, the Bari Sax picks up the tune and improvises on the repeat, with the brass plunger figures pulsing away behind it. The middle 8 is taken as a Trumpet solo (written out) and on it goes! This chart is a solo feature for Tenor 2 and Trumpet, as both have improvised solos, and there is a lovely example in the last chorus of the sort of instrumental voicings for which the Ellington band was later so famous. Tenor 1 doubles Clarinet and there are no other sax doubles. Another excellent arrangement by Klauss Lessmann. Swing @ 132 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: G5, C6, E5, B4 Trombones 1-4: G4, F4, D4, Bb3.

Clementine by Bobby Darin. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2006). Calling all male vocalists! Clementine is simply great fun. This Bobby Darin version is in a similar style to his more well known Mack the Knife, with successive half-step modulations, and a band backing that builds and builds to a huge finish. We have accurately notated Bobby's vocal line and phrasing, and written the rhythm parts as-played, where they are most important to the feel of the chart. No sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4 C6 (F6 opt), Ab5 (C6 opt), G5 (Ab5 opt), F5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, F4, Eb4, C4 Vocals Male Eb3 - F4 - Vocal key Eb to Ab.

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy by Nancy Wilson. Arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Soul Rock. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2027). A Soul vocal take on Zawinul's Mercy Mercy Mercy, performed with style by Nancy Wilson. The emotions behind this vocal are pure Soul - a mix of pleading, despair, hope and frustration. The arrangement is a perfect showcase for a singer who likes to really get their voice across, and the chart has a nice cameo vocal cadenza flourish at the finish. For the instrumentalists, this is an easy blow, yet the whole thing works wonderfully well. This arrangement would suit bands of all levels of ability, providing that you have a strong singer. The vocal key is C and the vocal range in the main tune is only just over the octave, though Nancy Wilson's interpretation takes her into two-octave range territory. There are no sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4: F5, B4, D5, B4 Trombones 1-4: E4, C4, C4, A3 Vocal key C Vocal: G3-Bb4 (10 steps) - G5 in cadenza.

Night And Day by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2030). A classic Cole Porter song from 1932, Night and Day was a 'must-have' number for the great Big Bands of the era. Our version is based on that used by Ella Fitzgerald, and is a good example how to score the band to best support the vocalist. The arrangement includes the vocal verse, backed by a solo tom-tom, leading into the tutti chorus. A very easy to play chart, and very effective in performance. Please note that the vocal key of this chart is A flat.

A classic from Ella Fitzgerald, this chart is a faithful transcription of her version, and is nothing at all like the Les Brown / Skippy Martin instrumental version.

Time After Time by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Marty Paich, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2110). Another swinging tune from the writing partnership of Sammy Cahn & Jule Styne. This version was originally arranged by Marty Paich and recorded by Ella Fitzgerald on her Whisper Not album. Our version is a transcription of this version, including the short verse intro and Ella's vocal line in full. The chart is an easy yet rewarding one for the band to play, and a chance to show off your girl vocalist's skills. The brass ranges are very moderate, with lead tumpet only getting to top line F, though your pianist will need to improvise some fills behind the vocal. The middle chorus Tenor solo is improvised, and we have written in the melody lead line and chords onto the part. The vocal keys are G and Ab. No sax doubles. The 4th Trombone is Bass.

Beyond The Sea by Bobby Darin. 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-2119). Bobby Darin had a big hit with this tune, and other singers hae also covered it very successfully, the latest being Robbie Williams on his Swing when your Winning album with a version very similar to Darin's original. We have transcribed the Darin chart here, except that there are no strings in our version. Instead we have given the relevant lines to the saxes, adapting the phrasing to improve the swing. The vocal is as per Bobby Darin's delivery, and we have also included an optional repeat at the end of the chart, to extend the play out, plus have written a definite ending, because the recorded version fades, and fade-outs are not good for live perfomances! The vocal key is F and there are no sax doubles. Apart from the lead trumpet having to reach a written high D# the brass parts are not demanding, and the chart will be a certain crowd pleaser. Trumpets 1-4: D#6, B5, G#5, F#5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F#4, E4, C#4 Vocal key F / Male Vocal C3 - F4 (11 steps).

That Old Black Magic by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Billy May, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2124). Ella Fitzgerald recorded this song many times in her career, and here is her finest version, from the 1960 Billy May collaboration album 'Sings the Harold Arlen Songbook.' This chart is just great all the way through, from the almost Phrygian opening into the relatively reserved first chorus, the blasting band chorus (including the fully written out tenor solo), Ella's more fluid second vocal chorus (also written out in full), the implied repeat to fade and the punch finish. This chart is simply a must have for any big band library. The vocal key is Bb. Trumpets 1-4 C6, B5, B5, B5 Trombones 1-4 A4, A4, A4, F4 Vocal key Bb Female Vocal F3 - Eb5 (13 steps).

I Said No by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Marty Paich, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2145). Written by the then relatively unknown duo of Styne and Loesser for the 1942 movie Sweater Girl, this version is from Ella Fitzgerald's 1966 album 'Whisper Not,' with the original arrangements all by Marty Paich. Opening with a short Colla Voce, the chart moves smoothly into a relaxed balladic swing, with subtle backings from the band throughout. A rhythmically interesting bridge leads to the half-step up modulation with muted trumpet infills. A change to a more bluesy feel follows and the swing increases, with the bass now walking and the drummer using sticks. The improvised muted trumpet backings continue through the second half of the chart, which builds to punchy climax. We have written out the vocal lines in full, and the piano part contains all of the important licks and fills too. The vocal keys are G and Ab. Trumpets 1-4 D6, G5, Db6, G5 Trombones 1-4 B4, F4, D4, D4 Vocal keys: G, Ab Female Vocal Eb3 - Eb5 (2 octaves).

The Very Thought Of You by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2228). The Very Thought of You is the Ella Fitzgerald version. Originally arranged by Nelson Riddle, it has been transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin. This chart is featured on the 'Ella Swings Gently With Nelson' album. Although the original was scored with strings, those string parts have been written into the band, making the chart playable with a regular 5/4/4/4 line up. Please note that separate string parts are not available. The trombones are written fairly high in the intro, with the lead expected to pick a high C out of the air in the 3rd measure. Therefore the trombone lines have been cued onto the trumpet parts in the intro, to make things a bit easier. The muted trumpet solo is written out 'as played', though your player can improvise a solo from the chords provided too. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Eb. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, A5, F5 Trombones 1-4: C5, Bb4, G4, Eb4 Vocal key Eb.

Don't Be That Way by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2238). Lovingly transcribed by Jon Harpin from the 'Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson' album, here is Ella Fitzgerald's version of the Goodman standard, Don't Be That Way. Nelson Riddle's concept is flawless, and the chart oozes class. The first chorus is only vocal and rhythm. The second chorus builds, with a call and response style of backing between the reeds and brass. The instrumental half chorus is taken at full punch, and the chart then eases down in volume to the end of the piece, to end with cameo Bass Trombone and Drum solos. The vocal key is Ab throughout, and we have written the vocal part 'as-sung' by Ella.

I Only Have Eyes For You by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2244). Here is the Ella Fizgerald / Nelson Riddle version of I Only Have Eyes For You, transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the "Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson" album. The original version contained strings, which have been scored back into the saxes, making the chart playable by a regular 5/4/4/4 line-up. As you would expect from a Riddle chart, this arrangement is full of punch, contains some great rhythmic and harmonic writing and is full of interest for band and audience alike. It has been rated at the difficult level, mainly because of the brass ranges. Lead trumpet hits high E and lead trombone high C. The 4th trombone is a bass (playable 8va by a tenor). There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is G throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, C#5, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, G4, E4, D4 Vocal key: G Female Vocal Range: D3 - D5 (2 octaves, as sung).

Pick Yourself Up by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2245). Pick Yourself Up has been lovingly transcribed by Jon Harpin from the wonderful album 'Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson', and the chart shows off the best of both vocalist and arranger. The structure of the chart sounds simple - a bold intro, vocal chorus, band interlude with tenor and trumpet solo breaks and a rousing vocal chorus to finish - but the writing in it is simply stunning. The chart opens in the key of C, moves to D then Eb, reverts to C and D for the instrumental sections and back to Eb and C for the last vocal chorus. There is always something happening to catch the ear of the listener, and your band needs to be awake too. The brass is written quite high, with lead trumpet to high F and lead trombone to B. Alto 1 also doubles clarinet. Not an easy chart, but it is a classic. Trumpets 1-4: F6, E6, C6, Ab5 Trombones 1-4: B4, Ab4, F4, E4 Vocal key: C to D to G to C Female Vocal: E3 - C5 (13 steps) as sung.

The strings are now gone, re-scored into the brass, making the chart playable by a regular big band line-up. Altos 1 & 2 are written with flute doubles, though alternate alto parts that don't have the flute lines have been included in case your players don't double. The Bob Cooper tenor solo is also written out, though your player can improvise his/her own from the chords if preferred. The vocal part is written 'as sung' by Ella and the vocal key is C throughout.
