My Gal Sal by Bobby Darin. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2365). Here is Bobby Darin's great take on My Gal Sal, a song normally associated with a more trad / dixie setting. This version is a mid-tempo swinger that features the vocalist all the way. Unusually, the singer has to pitch the first note, (so a cue from your pianist might help out) and what sounds like the intro is actually the first 8 of the chorus. A novel concept which works really well. Although at just over two minutes it's not a long chart, the length is perfect for the arrangement. We have written the vocal part "as sung" by Darin. Lead Alto is written to double flute at the start, and we have cross-cued the piano part in case your alto player doesn't double flute. The vocal key is F. Style: . Swing @ 135 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, A5, G5, D5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, E4, C4Vocal key: FVocal Range: A2 - F#4 (13 steps as sung).

Lullaby Of Broadway by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Frank Devol. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2362). Artfully transcribed by Jon Harpin from the original Fank DeVol arrangement, this Ella Fitzgerald chart swings hard from start to finish. Much use is made of unison sax & trombone riffs which add bucket loads of drive and pulse to the chart. The muted trumpet solo is writen out in full, though your player can improvise one from the chords provided. The screaming lead trumpet line (which sounds an octave above the rest of the brass) is as an optional 8va. Alto 1 doubles clarinet. The vocal keys are Bb and Eb.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: E6, C6, Bb5, Bb5Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Ab4, Ab4, Db4Vocal key: Bb-EbVocal Range: G3 - Eb5 (13 steps as sung).

Get Me To The Church On Time by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2361). We are pleased to offer Rosemary Clooney's hard-swingin', foot-tappin' version of Get Me To The Church On Time. Lovingly transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the Nelson Riddle original, this charts is a belter of a vocal number. The church / tubular bells of the Riddle original (which are pretty key to making the chart convincing) have been scored onto the piano part, and if your pianist uses a keyboard a good bell sound at the appropriate times will sound great. There are a couple of cameo solos - trumpet 2 and alto 2 on flute - both written out, though the alto 2/flute is really only optional, to add a bit of tonal color. The chart is a reasonably tough blow, but fairly straight-ahead. The vocal key is D throughout.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: F#6, C#6, C#6, G#5 Trombones 1-4 C#5, A4, G4, E4 Vocal key Bb -Eb Vocal F#3 - A4 (10 steps as sung).

All The Things You Are by Helen Forrest With Artie Shaw. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Jerry Gray. For big band with vocal. Swing. Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2358). Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Artie Shaw band, this is an accurate transcription of the original Jerry Gray concept, complete with the intro piano solo and Shaw's silky first chorus solo line. A couple of small adaptations have been made: the saxes are scored for AATTB, with Alto 1 taking the clarinet lines, baritone doubling alto (to give the correct AATT backing to the clarinet), and the brass has been augmented to 8 voices. All of the correct articulations, mute indications and dynamics are included, to enable an authentic performance. The vocal key is F and the vocal range would suit most male or female singers. The modulation into the vocal key is somewhat abrupt, so to help pitch the first vocal note the singer will need to listen to the top sax voice fairly carefully. Other than this, the chart is very playable, and the brass ranges are moderate. This is a great arrangement of a wonderful song.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . Bb5, A5, A5, D5Trombones . 1-4: .

The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2354). This beautiful Jerome Kern song was recorded by Sinatra in 1964 on the Reprise label for the "Days Of Wine & Roses" album collaboration with Nelson Riddle. We have adapted the chart by removing the strings and orchestral woodwins, making it playable with a standard 5444 band. Sinatra's vocal line is written "as-sung" by the master. Also, we have faithfully reproduced the Riddle trademark open 6:9 sax voicings, so that the chart has that real Riddle feel. We have even notated the correct articulations and dynamic changes on the parts, to make it easier for your band to give an authentic performance. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Eb modulating to E. Style: . Swing @140 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . Eb6, C5, Bb5, G5Trombones . 1-4: .

Blues In The Night by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with male/female vocal duet and backing vocal group. Swing. Advanced. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2353). Billy May wrote many outstanding charts for the Miller band, and this is one of his finest. The writing is moody, sometimes dark, but harmonically rich and full. It contains little of the trademark Miller syrup sax sweetness, yet is full of tension and emotional energy. The chart is scored for boy & girl vocal with a 4 piece vocal backing group and it won't work without them. Both altos double clarinet, and the solo trumpet fill-ins are written out in full too. This is not an easy chart to get right, but if your band has the talent to do it, your audience will really appreciate the result. The vocal key is F throughout. Style: .

Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2352). This tune was recorded by Ella for her Harold Arlen songbook album, with the original arrangement scored by Billy May. The chart has been adapted to a full 5444 line-up (from the original 5114) though the feel and flavor are true to the original. Billy May chose an innovative set of chord changes for his chart which are significantly different from Harold Arlen's concept. The result is that the chart is cool yet progressive. Whilst the band notes are easy, it will need to be sung very confidently, as the vocal line doesn't immediately sit very naturally against the band backings. It will require a bit of practice. Ella's vocal line is written as-sung, including the scat passage towards the close of the chart. The vocal key is Bb throughout, and there are no sax doubles. The original vibe solo is replaced by Piano ad-lib. Duration: 2 mins 20 secs; Style: Swing @150 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, Bb5, G5, E5Trombones 1-4: Ab4, F4, E4, Bb3Vocal key: BbVocal Range: F3 - Eb4 (14 steps as sung).

I'm Always Chasing Rainbows by Helen Forrest With Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Eddie Sauter. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2346). Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1940, this melodious tune was originally composed by Chopin (Fantasie-Impromptu Op.66) and then adapted and performed by numerous artists including Goodman, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. The melody is one of those that sticks in the mind, and naturally lends itself to arrangement. This chart is scored for female vocal plus full big band - we have augmented the Brass to 8 voices from the original 5. The arrangement opens in Db, with the Trombones taking the melody, modulates to Eb for the vocal chorus and further modulates to Bb for the final band shout. The reeds are scored for CATTB though we have included an optional Alto 2 part (a transposition of the Tenor 1 part) which then allows one of your Tenor players to take the Clarinet part instead of your lead Alto. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C6, A5, G5, F5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, G4, C4Vocal Key: Bb to C to BbVocal Range: Bb3 - C5 (9 steps as sung).

This version of Ain't We Got Fun was recorded by Doris Day, with the Paul Weston Orchestra accompanied by the Norman Luboff Choir. The original arrangement was by Paul Weston. Our transcription closely mirrors the original, except that we have cued the Trombone section with the 4 voice backing group (choir) parts, making the chart playable by big band and solo female vocalist. The chart is an out-and-out vocal feature and contains no band solos or even ensemble choruses, aside from intro, modulation and ending. The vocal key opens in Bb, modulates to C and reverts to Bb.

That's The Way He Does It by Doris Day. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2344). Recorded by Doris Day with the Lou Bring Orchestra in 1947, this chart is a really laid-back, bluesy swing ballad. The band supports the vocalist beautifully, and the underlying harmonies are rich and lush. The lyric tells the tale of a woman who seems to enjoy being treated badly by her man. Whilst it is somewhat politically incorrect in todays world, the inference can be reversed by swapping "she" for "he" and "him" for "her" in the lyric. All that aside, this chart makes for a great concert piece, or last set mood changer. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Db throughout.

Here is Rosemary Clooney's cool 1950s version of Oh You Beautiful Doll, written for vocal solo plus 4 piece backing group. If you band doesn't have a vocal group to hand, don't worry!
