Zamboni by Bill Holman. Arranged by Bill Holman. Jazz Ensemble / Jazz Band. The Bill Holman Big Band Series. From the Holman CD "Hommage". Bright Swing / Marvelous Chart. Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-942). What a marvelous chart this is! The "engine" which keeps on going is a 4-bar vamp in the rhythm section. It occurs throughout the piece and ties everything together beautifully. Set in a bright swinging tempo, the chart opens with 8 bars of brushes and swings on from there. There is also solo space for tenor saxophone. Holman uses some marvelous brass effects all through the piece. This requires soprano saxophone on the alto 1 and 2 parts. 5-4-4-4 (on demo CD 117) As recorded on the new CD "Hommage.".

Chet's Call by Metheny / Mays. Arranged by Bob Curnow. Jazz Ensemble / Jazz Band. The Pat Metheny Big Band Series. Swing. Grade 4. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-981). This piece was never recorded by the Pat Metheny Group. It was "lost in history" until discovered on a 1985 radio transcription. Pat says this was written for a gig with Charlie Haden, Billy Higgins and Chet Baker "that never happened." It is a wonderful, swinging tune that has solo space for alto sax, trumpet (or trombone) and drums. "Chet's Call" is a very playable piece, with limited range concerns. This is a side of Pat & Lyle that is rarely heard these days. A great tune ! 5-4-4-4 (on demo CD 117).

Just Friends arranged by Rob McConnell. For big band. Swing. Advanced. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8002). Here's Rob McConnell's tour de force arrangement of Just Friends from his 1981 album 'Big Band Jazz, Vol. 1' on Pausa Records. We have used the original manuscript to generate this arrangement - it is not a transcription. This brisk arrangement moves along at 224 bpm and is really designed for the cream of the professional bands. In addition to the tempo, there is a long sax soli and ensemble sections without the rhythm section. The chart features solos for tenor saxophone, trombone, trumpet, and alto saxophone. The ranges are very high for trumpet and trombone (see below). Lastly, it is scored for 5 trumpets and 5 trombones; however, the chart can be played with 4 trumpets and 4 trombones (5/5/5/4). Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high G (4 ledger lines above staff) Trumpet 2: to high E (3 lines above staff) Trumpet 3: to high B Trumpet 4: to high B All Trombones: to high C (4 ledger lines).

Jingle Bells by Count Basie. Arranged by Ernie Wilkins, Jonathan Lorentz. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8006). On a warm, July day in 1961 Ernie Wilkins came to a Count Basie Orchestra gig at Birdland in New York with a newly completed manuscript in his hand. He had just finished an arrangement of the holiday classic Jingle Bells and wanted to have the band give it a test-run with an eye towards recording it in the studio later on in the year. Well, despite the fact that it was the middle of the summer the band played it. The raucous chart was a huge success and has been featured on many holiday compilations ever since. This chart has been transcribed from the live recording as it was a more enthusiastic version than what was later recorded in the studio. In the live recording Count Basie starts off the arrangement with a 64-bar solo based on an 8-bar chord progression. In the studio version, there are only 16 bars upfront. Basie's piano introduction from the studio recording has been written out as it serves the chart well: it is classic Basie piano material. Your band has the option of repeating this 8-bar intro as many times as you need and then cueing the band in. Chord changes for the tenor saxophone solo have been included rather than writing out the solo. There are no saxophone doubles. The sound sample provided is from the studio recording so that you can hear the piano introduction.

Star Eyes by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Hal Mooney, Rob Duboff. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9001).

Arranged by Hal Mooney and performed by Helen O'Connell in the late 1970s, this chart is flows nicely and supports the singer well. O'Connell also recorded a version of this song in 1953 (on her Green Eyes album). That version featured strings, celeste, a harp, flute, clarinets, and bass clarinets.

I Won't Dance by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Neal Hefti. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9002). Jazz Lines Publications presents this classic Neal Hefti big band arrangement from the 1962 Frank Sinatra and Count Basie collaboration 'Sinatra-Basie.' This is vintage Neal Hefti: mellow, but swinging lines and enough space to afford the vocalist some freedom of interpretation. The chart really 'breathes' well. The arrangement calls for alto 1 to double flute (Frank Wess was the flutist on the record). An alternate alto 1 part is included that avoids the flute double in the event that you don't have a flutist available. The chart features a couple of short tenor sax solos, which have been written out. From the All Music Guide review of the album: "The record was criticized by some as a letdown when it came out, probably because Neal Hefti's charts rarely permit the band to roar, concentrating on use of subtlety and space. Yet the record's restraint has worn very well over the long haul it doesn't beat you into submission and it concludes with its best shot, a wonderfully playful treatment of 'I Won't Dance.'" Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high C# Trombone 1: to high G# Vocal Key: C modulating to Db.

How About You? by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle; Walt Stuart. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9003). Late in 1955 and early in 1956 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all-time: 'Songs for Swingin' Lovers.' We are very proud to offer the closing track of that disc, which swings as heartily as the rest of the cuts on the record, which might be the very best album from the strongest period of Frank's long career. This chart brings one of Sinatra's very best and timeless recordings sparkling to life. This classic version of 'How About You' is a particularly famous arrangement crafted by the brilliant arranger Nelson Riddle. This chart is instantly recognizable from the first few notes and swings like mad. This has been adapted to suit a big band lineup of 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, drums, and vocals. Please note that the mp3 sample has an anti-piracy tone every 30 seconds.

Who Cares by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans. For big band with female vocal. Fast Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9004). This is a tremendous chart from master arranger Marion Evans, recorded by Helen O'Connell for her 'Here's Helen' album. This is not a transcription, the original handwritten manuscript was used to produce this arrangement. This arrangement moves at brisk pace of approx. 240 b.p.m (quarter note) and features a lot of beautifully crafted, syncopated unison lines. The drummer can really shine on this chart as crisp accents can help carry the band during the shout sections. The trombones open on plungers. There is a brief interlude that originally featured someone in the band calling out "Just one more once, baby!" We have included this part as a 'band yell' as it is a nice break in the action and can provide a bit of humor. There are no doubles. Trumpet 1 goes to a high E once but doesn't get higher than C# otherwise. Vocal Key: F modulating to Gb. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high E Trombone 1: to high C Vocal Key: F modulating to Gb.

Our Love Is Here To Stay by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9006). Here's another classic Nelson Riddle arrangement from the Frank Sinatra 1956 Capitol Record 'Songs for Swingin' Lovers.' Like the others from this record, this is a masterpiece in big band writing. The arrangement begins with a short piano into (written out, but your pianist can improvise something comparable). The vocals enter at measure 5 with the brass in cup mutes. The string parts have been scored into the band (mostly in the sax section). The ranges are modest. The chart features some nice harmon muted trumpet as solo and backing vocals. These solos have been fully written out for trumpet 2 as well as the chord changes should your player want to improvise something comparable. The vocal key is D throughout. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high B Trombone 1: to high F sharp Vocal Key: D.

Don't Worry 'Bout Me by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Quincy Jones, Syd Potter. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9011). Here is another classic Sinatra arrangement, this one from the pen of Quincy Jones. In 1966 Frank Sinatra collaborated with the Count Basie Orchestra to produce a series of shows at the Sands Hotel. 'Sinatra Live at the Sands' was the now-famous recording that was made. Quincy Jones did most of the arrangements with some help from Billy Byers. This arrangement of the Rube Bloom classic tune moves along at approximately 69 bpm - a very laid back swing feel. Towards the end there is a great band shout section - and they really shout and build to a climax before dropping back down for Frank's entrance. The end of the arrangement will require some conducting as there are multiple fermatas. The vocal key is E flat throughout and there are no doubles. Ranges: Trumpet 1: High C Trombone 1: High A Vocal Key: E Flat.

Summer Wind by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Syd Potter. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9017). Well, here is another classic, instantly recognizable Frank Sinatra arrangement. This chart comes from the 1996 'Strangers in the Night' record, which, despite the success of the record, proved to be last collaboration between Sinatra and Riddle. An organ is featured on the recording, but a piano will work just fine. If you have access to an organ, all the better. In addition, the ending is scored for alto 1 and tenor 1 to double on flutes. But, we have included alternate parts in the event that you don't have access to flutes. This is a very straight-forward chart with no big suprises. The trick is to get that laid-back, basie-style, swing feel. The tempo is approximately 92 bpm. The ranges are very comfortable, but the vocals go through several modulations: D flat to E flat to F. This is just another great, must-have Sinatra chart that your audience will love! Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high B Trombone 1: to high A Vocal Keys: D flat modulating to E flat modulating to F.

Here is Helen O'Connell's original arrangement of 'I Cried for You' from her 1962 'Here's Helen' album. This is not a transcription, the original Marion Evans manuscript has been used.

In the middle there is a brass soli followed by a reed soli that leads to an 8-bar trombone solo (trombone 2). The solo has not been written out, but guide notes (per the original manuscript) and chord changes have been supplied. Your piano player gets to play a little bit by supplying fills behind the vocals per the original recording.

The vocal key is B flat modulating to B for the last 12 bars. Vocal Key: B flat modulating to B.
