Just In Time by Frank Sinatra. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2327). Taken from the Frank Sinatra / Billy May album "Come Dance With Me", this rare Sinatra chart carries all of the punch of Billy May's superb writing, combined with the flowing vocal subtlety that is hallmark Sinatra. Whilst the original recording suggeats a key of B, we have scored the chart in Bb for ease of playing. The brass ranges are generally not too high, though 1,2 & 3 are scored unison to top D at one point. However, 2 & 3 can drop an octave at this point, bringing their as-played top notes down to B and A respectively. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Bb. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: .

Blacksmith Blues by Ella Mae Morse. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2325). Here is Ella Mae Morse's Blacksmith Blues, written for her by Jack Holmes. This song was originally the flipside to Love Me or Leave Me, issued in 1952 by Capitol Records, and it became her biggest hit. The chart was scored by Nelson Riddle whilst he was staff arranger at Capitol, and is probably the only big band chart which includes an anvil in the rhythm section. Whilst the original recording has a fade out at the end, we have written a definite ending, because fadeouts just don't work outside of a studio. The vocal key is Bb and there are no sax doubles.

The vocal lines are "as sung" by Maxine, Patty and LaVerne. The reeds are scored for two clarinets, two tenors and baritone throughout.

The vocal is scored for a boy / girl duet, as per the record version.

Pass That Peace Pipe by Kay Kyser. Arranged by Bill Fontaine and Judd Conlon. For big band with solo vocal or quintet. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2313). Many big bands of the 30s & 40s performed novelty numbers, and most of them were very forgettable. However, some endured, simply because they were so well written and arranged. Kay Kyser's version of Pass That Peace Pipe is one of these. The arrangement was by Bill Fontaine and Judd Conlon , and it is a beautiful piece of work. Whilst the chart was written for Female Vocal plus 4 piece backing ( Gloria Wood & the Campus Kids ) it will work with just a solo vocalist. Alto & Tenor saxes are called to double clarinets in the intro, but the parts are printed double-sided, with a " no double " option, in case your players don't have clarinets. This is a very rare chart from the heyday of the Kyser band and a fine addition to any library. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, B6, B5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, A4, A4, D4 Vocal Keys: Em to Fm.

Elmer's Tune by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Jerry Gray. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2310). This chart is an absolute vocal classic from Ray Eberle and the Modernaires with the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Alan Glasscock's fine transcription of Jerry Gray's chart is true to the original in every respect, right down the the vocal voicings, the band articulations, dynamics and phrasing marks. Although written for full big band, male vocal and 4-piece backing vocals, this arrangement will work without the vocal group, but will lose much of its flavour as a result.
