What Is This Thing Called Love by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2294). We think that the trombone section in most big bands rarely gets a chance to shine and show off their collective talents, so we have taken Ella Fitzgerald's version of this fine Cole Porter tune and scored the chart for just vocal, trombones and a rhythm section. The chart is in Ella's key of G and the vocal part is written "as sung" by Ella. We also recognize that many bands only use 3 trombones, and as this chart needs 4 brass voices in order to work properly we have included an extra trumpet part in the pack (a double of the trombone 1 part), making the chart playable by just about all bands. As well as featuring the vocalist there is a fine 8 measure Trombone soli, and an 8 measure trombone solo (written on the 2nd part). Style: Swing @ 145 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: TacetTrombones 1-4: A4, G4, G4, C4Vocal key: GVocal Range: A#3 - C5 (9 steps as sung).

Too Darn Hot by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Buddy Bregman. For big band with vocal. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2293). Too Darn Hot was written by Cole Porter for the 1948 musical "Kiss Me Kate" and was featured by Ella Fitzgerald on her Cole Porter Songbook album, with the original arrangement by Buddy Bregman. This publication stays true to the original, allowing you to give an authentic Ella performance. The vocal part is notated "as sung by Ella", the band backings are tight and punchy, the articulations and dynamics accurately marked and we have even included the little drum fills and licks that make such a difference in performance. The muted trumpet solos are scored on the 2nd part and there are no sax doubles.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, A5, F#5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, G4, D4Vocal key: Cm/CVocal Range: G3 - C5 (11 steps as sung).

It's All Right With Me by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Buddy Bregman. For big band with vocal. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2288). Written by Cole Porter for his 1953 musical "Can-Can", this Ella Fitzgerald chart is an up-tempo, hard swinging version (originally scored by Buddy Bregman for her Cole Porter Songbook album) with a cool groove feel. The chart backs the vocalist brilliantly, with the supporting lines being strong & rhythmic without ever getting in the way of the singer. The cameo muted trumpet solos are taken by the second chair and can be played as written or faked from the chords provided. There are no sax doubles.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: C#6, Bb5, G5, E5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, F4, E4Vocal key: BbVocal Range: G3 - C5 (11 steps as sung).

Anything Goes by In The Style Of Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2285). This arrangement of Anything Goes is scored as a female vocal, very much in the style of Ella Fitzgerald. The intro features the rarely heard verse before moving into swing tempo at a medium 120 beats per minute, with muted brass backing the first vocal chorus. The second chorus is led by the saxes, followed by a full ensemble leading to the vocal return for the middle eight to the end of the chorus, with a brief ensemble shout to finish. The saxes are scored to double Flute, clarinets and bass clarinet for the intro, though all parts have cues for saxes which allows the chart to be played by a regular AATTB section with no doubles. Brass ranges are very moderate, with lead trumpet to a written A and lead trombone to G. The vocal key is Gm / G major. Style: Swing @ 110/120 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: A5, F#5, D5, B4Trombones 1-4: G4, F4, E4, E4Vocal key: Gm/GVocal Range: G3 - B4 (10 steps).

Ace In The Hole by Ella Fitzgerald. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Buddy Bregman. For big band with vocal. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2281). This song was written by Cole Porter for his 1941 musical "Let's Face It" and featured in Ella's Cole Porter Songbook album. It is an up-tempo swinger with a predominantly minor feel, and we have stayed true to the original Bregman concept by retaining the delicate Flute lines over muted Brass. The vocal line is scored "as sung" by Ella. Both Altos are written to double Flute, though we have included an additional Alto 2 part which is scored to double Clarinet instead. At two minutes this is not a long chart, though the length is perfect for the arrangement concept. A good chart for either a concert or working gig.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C#6, B5, G5, E5Trombones 1-4: B4, G4, E4, C4Vocal key: GVocal Range: F3 - D5 (13 steps as sung).

It Happened In Sun Valley by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Bill Finegan. For big band with vocal group [or solo vocal]. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2278). It Happened in Sun Valley' was written for the 1941 film 'Sun Valley Serenade,' featuring Sonja Henie, John Payne and the Glenn Miller Orchestra with the Modernaires. The Miller chart has been recreated and has been scored for a full big band and five-piece vocal backing group, though it is singable with only a boy/girl duo. The band vocal chorus is written into all of the brass and sax parts. All saxes are called upon to double clarinet (baritone on bass clarinet and alto). However, the bari sax part is printed double sided - with and without the bass clarinet double. Tex Beneke's solo is written out in full on the tenor 1 part, and is also cued on tenor 2. The vocal starts in G, and modulates to C, Ab and G, as per the original. A great chart for Christmas, or for a Miller tribute. Swing @ 210 bpm Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, E5, D5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F#4, D#4, C#4 Vocal key G to C to Ab to G .

Hey There by Bette Midler. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2268). Transcribed from the album 'Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook' this chart was written by Adler and Ross for the musical 'The Pajama Game,' and was a huge hit for Rosemary Clooney. Midler's version opens with the little colla voce verse, though you can kick it off straight into tempo at measure 5 if preferred. The piano backings in the first chorus have been written out to match the recording and keep the flavor of the original. Also included on the vocal part is Midler's studio backing overdub answer-back lines, though they are not really necessary in a performance of the chart. You could assign the answer-back to one member of the band to enhance the effect at a stage performance. Midler's original also had some string lines which have been assigned to the sax section. The vocal keys are A, modulating to Bb, and there are no sax doubles. Swing @ 110 bpm. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, A5, D5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, G4, C4 Vocal key: A to Bb Vocal Range: G#3 to Bb4 (9 steps, as sung).

In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening by Bette Midler. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2266). Taken from the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook" this chart is a punchy up-tempo swinger, and an out-and-out vocal feature, with no solo space in the band backings, aside from four little accented piano answerbacks in the closing of the chart, and some solo bass behind the vocal after the modulation. The band's backing phrases require precision and tightness, and we have written the required articulations on all of the parts, so your players will be in no doubt as to what is required. Midler's original had some String lines. We have incorporated the flavor of these lines into the sax section, but written them as "optional subtones". The vocal part is notated "as-sung" by Ms Midler, and the vocal keys are C, modulating to Db. There are no sax doubles. Style: . Swing @ 155 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: .

Marie by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2264). Marie is a laid back male vocal chart from the Tommy Dorsey orchestra, also singable by female alto, featuring trombone, tenor, and the trumpet section. The original Bunny Berigan trumpet solo has been expanded into a sectional soli, as Dorsey did in his later recordings of this chart, and this passage calls for tight and accurate sectional play. After a short intro the trombone takes the first solo chorus, backed by the band. The second chorus is the vocal, with the band singing counterpoint to the vocal soloist. At the end of this chorus the trumpet section picks up into the modulation into Eb and rips the next 32 measures, backed by the saxes. The trumpet ranges are quite high here in places, with the lead reaching high F and the second to high D. The trombone then solos for 16 measures, followed by the tenor, and a quick four measure passage in similar style to the intro rounds off the piece. The vocal chorus is in C, and there are no sax doubles. 3:30 duration. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, D6, Bb5, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, Gb4, Gb4, A3 Vocal Key: C Vocal Range: G3 - C4 (11 steps, as sung).

On A Little Street In Singapore by Ray Eberle With Glenn Miller. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2261). A classic Glenn Miller chart from the early days of the band, with vocals by Ray Eberle, and featuring the Miller trademarks of Clarinet-led reeds over brass in plungers, a great modulation to the vocal chorus, a surprise modulation out of the vocal to the last chorus (in Perfidia style), and a reed flourish to end. Originally written for only 6 brass, the chart has been adapted to fit an 8-voice brass section. Alto 1 is on clarinet throughout, with alto 2 doubling clarinet in the last 2 measures (with cue notes for alto on the part). The vocal chorus is in Db, with only an octave range, and the brass ranges are not demanding. The chart sounds best if your sax team can emulate the Miller vibrato (fast and narrow for the upper voices, slow and broad for the lower). Duration: 2 minutes 45 secs; Swing @ 115 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, E5, C#5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, F#4, Eb4, C4 Vocal key: Db Vocal Db3 - Db4 (1 octave, as sung).

I'm Beginning To See The Light by Harry James. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2249). I'm Beginning To See The Light is a popular tune, recorded by most of the great vocalists. This is the Harry James version originally sung by Kitty Kallen. The chart is unusual in that it features a couple of guitar solos (though these solos have been cross cued onto the piano part in case your band doesn't have a guitarist) and the opening and closing choruses are taken by a trumpet, tenor and baritone trio. Being a Harry James chart there is of course a little feature solo for trumpet (written on the second trumpet part). Second alto doubles clarinet, and the vocal key is Db.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4 : C6, A5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4 : Bb4, Ab4, Ab4, Db4 Vocal key: Db [Female Vocal G3 - Ab4 (9 steps)].

Written in 1920 by Jolson & DeSylva, this song was a favorite of Nat King Cole, and later featured by Natalie Cole on her 'Unforgettable' album. This is a transcription of her Bill Holman chart. It moves along at a very fast pace, and nimble fingers along with good playing technique are needed for your band to get it right, especially in the middle instrumental chorus. Lead Trumpet is written to high F and lead Trombone to high C. This is a punchy and very powerful arrangement full of interesting tonal color, and makes a rousing feature for any vocalist.

I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan by Tony Bennett With Count Basie. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Ralph Sharon. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2187). This version of 'I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan' was recorded by the great Tony Bennett with the Count Basie Orchestra and is a laid back swinger in true Basie style. The only change to the Ralph Sharon original is to voice the brass for an 8 piece section. Aside from the big instrumental soli in the middle of the chart it is the saxes who do most of the backing lines behind the vocal, using some innovaive voicings to give the chart a great jazz feel. The trumpet lines are quite high, with lead reaching high F# and second to high C#. Although not a long chart, it is a classic of its genre and worth its place in any library.

Recorded by Anita O'Day in 1955 this super cool chart oozes class and style. It is a vocal feature from top to bottom and the vocal lines are skillfully supported by just a rhythm section and 4 trombones. There are no saxes.

This is the children's nursery rhyme "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" that has been given the Count Basie / Jimmy Rushing treatment. The chart features your male singer, your Tenor soloist, your Pianist, and let's not forget all of your instrumentalists singing a couple of choruses of unison vocals.

They'll Be Some Changes Made by Julie London. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2172). This chart is a punchy and powerful up-tempo swinger that, aside from the intro and an 8 measure instrumental passage, features your vocalist all the way. The reeds, in a Billy May style, provide the majority of the backings for the first vocal chorus, with the brass adding increasing power up to the close. The arrangement has a lot of dynamic contrast which needs to be played as-written in order to give the right effect. A fine chart for a dance or concert setting.

Witchcraft by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2150). Witchcraft was a song originally written specifically for Frank Sinatra, and later covered by other singers. This is the Helen O'Connell version which is simply stunning, and your singer will love you for having this chart in the book. The chart features your vocalist and clarinet. It opens with a drum/clarinet duet in Krupa/Goodman style, and the band entry sets the tone for what is to follow. This chart swings like crazy from start to finish, and whilst the writing is very sophisticated, the chart has a raw, jungle energy about it. The saxes are scored for CATTB, although an extra alto part has been included (a transposition of tenor 1) thus allowing one of your tenor players to take the solo clarinet part. The vocal key is Db throughout, and the range also makes it singable by a male voice 8vb.

L-O-V-E by Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2138). This chart is an adaptation of Natalie Cole's L-O-V-E (LOVE) (L is for the way you look at me...) which sticks very closely to her version. It is a medium to up-tempo swing chart, opening in the key of G with rhythm and vocal, the trombones then join, with a muted trumpet adding little fills, then onto a muted trumpet solo chorus backed by saxes and trombones. A quick modulation to Ab brings the vocal back in, with the whole band backing and the chart builds and builds to a rousing climax. Natalie's vocal line in the Ab section is her interpretation of the melody, and rises to F with a final high Ab flourish. If your vocalist chooses to stay with the original vocal line, she will only need to reach C, giving the chart a 1 octave vocal range. There are no sax doubles. Vocal key: G to Ab Female Vocal: C#4 - F5 (11 steps as written).

Taken from Ella's "Harold Arlen Songbook" album, this transcription of Billy May's original arrangement is a snarling swing chart, balancing punch and up-tempo power with soulful gospel interludes. The tempo alternates between 200 and 70 beats per minute in the opening 32 measures before settling on 200 for the remainder of the chart, and we have scored the sax solo onto the Alto 1 part. The original solo is written out, though your player can improvise from the chords provided, if preferred. The brass ranges are quite high, with lead Trumpet to Eb and lead Bone to C, and there is a lot of unison work in both Trumpet and Sax sections, so good intonation and nimble fingers are needed.

Taking A Chance On Love by Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Fletcher Henderson. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2098). Taking a Chance on Love was written in 1940, and despite being a last minute inclusion for the Broadway musical 'Cabin in the Sky' it became the show's most enduring hit. Benny Goodman recorded this version in 1940, featuring the vocal of Helen Forrest. It was re-released in 1943 and charted for 14 weeks including 3 weeks at the number one spot. We have adapted Fletcher Henderson's original Goodman chart up to 8 brass, and have scored the reeds CAATT.

Witchcraft by Frank Sinatra. Edited by Jon Harpin. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2089). Perhaps one of Frank Sinatra's most memorable hits, this version of Witchcraft was originally arranged by Nelson Riddle. The original concept has been adapted here by removing the strings and orchestral woodwinds, making the chart playable by a standard 5/4/4/4 big band line up. However, in order to maintain the feel of the original arrangement the two flute doubles have been retained. These are written on the alto 2 and tenor 1 part (also cued on the alto 1 part, in case your tenor player doesn't double on flute). Sinatra's vocal line is scored as-sung.

The band intro is there, as are the correct modulations and fills behind the vocal lines. This is also offered as an instrumental-only version. No sax doubles and the brass ranges are not demanding.

Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh by The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal trio [SSA]. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2008). Oh Johnny! was another early hit for the Andrews Sisters and it has been reproduced here for you. The chart has been adapted by expanding it to full big band form, up from the smaller band which was used to back the sisters. Also, the chart has been written out in the key of C, rather than the key of B which some recordings imply. The reeds are scored CAATB, though an extra tenor part - a transposition of alto 2 - has been included, making the reeds CATTB, to give you flexibility in your sax section. The vocal parts are written in for SSA voices and are 'as sung' by the Andrews Sisters. This is a really bouncy number, and great fun to play. Vocal key: C Female Vocal SSA Trio.

The Ted Heath band was arguably the best big band from the UK and probably the only one to achieve any level of success in the USA, and it did so with superbly scored charts like this version of This Can't Be Love. Written at an up-tempo 200 b.p.m. and featuring great sectional and cross sectional writing, the chart offers a solo chorus for trumpet 2 (improvised) and one of those rarities - a written bass solo. This chart requires tightness and precision from the band, and the lead trumpet is written to high F6, hence it has been graded at the difficult level. There are no sax doubles. Style: . Swing @ 200 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . F6, A5, Ab5, Ab5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, Ab4, Ab4, E4.

I Got Rhythm by Glenn Miller. Edited by Alan Glasscock. Arranged by Billy May. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1334). Charts from the Glenn Miller band are always popular, and most bands have the majority of the Miller classics in their libraries. However, from time to time we like to offer something a litte rarer and more obscure. This version of I Got Rhythm falls firmly into this category. The chart was never studio recorded by the Miller band, probably because the arrangement was too long to fit on a single record side, and only two live recordings are known to exist. This has been transcribed from the January 1942 live recording, and for all of you Miller fans out there it's a stunner. The original arrangement was by Billy May, so naturally there are a couple of cameo trumpet solos thrown in, along with tenor and alto 1 solos too. Both Altos are required to double Clarinet. This is not an easy chart by any means, but well worth the effort.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, Eb6, Bb5, Bb5Trombones 1-4: A4, Ab4, Ab4, F4.

Hors D'oeuvre by Bert Ambrose. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1333). Originally written in 1915 for solo Piano, Hors D'Oeuvre became a huge hit for both Sid Phillips and Bert Ambrose . The chart was also revived by Billy May in his Time Life Swing Era recordings. This chart (based on the Ambrose 1935 recording) recaptures the mood of the British dance band era back in the 20's and 30's. You will need a Pianist with a good right hand. A bit of stride skill with the left would be useful too. The chart also features solos (all written out) for Alto 2, Trumpet 2, Clarinet (Alto 1) and Trombone 1. In the reeds, both Altos and Tenors are required to double Clarinet. If you are ever called to play a roaring 20's style number and are bored with the Charleston, this chart will have the dance floor filled with dancers in no time. Style: . Swing @ 165 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . A5, G5, G5, GTrombones . 1-4: . C5, F4, F4, F4.

One Night Stand by Artie Shaw. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Artie Shaw. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1329). Originally released on the a-side of Shaw's March 1939 Bluebird record B-10202, One Night Stand is a Shaw arrangement in what he described as a "riff chart", being designed primarily for dancing. Nevertheless, the chart offers solo spaces for trumpet, tenor, trombone, piano and of course clarinet. All of the original solos have been written out, though your players can improvise their own from the chords if preferred. The original Shaw band chart was scored for 6 brass; this edition has been augmented to a full 8-piece section. The saxes are scored CAATT. Style: Swing @ 200 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, G5, E5, C#5Trombones 1-4: G4, G4, G4, G4.

When Buddha Smiles by Glen Gray. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Jan Savitt. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1328). Transcribed from the Jan Savitt arrangement as played by Glen Gray on the Time Life Swing Era (1939-1940) session, this is a roaring little up-tempo swing chart that pulses from start to finish. The Tenor, Trumpet and Rhythm solos are written out "as played", though your players can improvise their own if preferred. It's quite a quick tempo, but the chart is relatively simple, very playable and certainly very enjoyable. The chart opens in G, modulates to C for the unison Trombone soli and Tenor solo, and via a cleverly written descending brigde moves into Eb for the Trumpet solo. Another short bridge, taken by the rhythm section, moves the chart to Ab for the shout chorus.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C6, C6, B5, B5Trombones . 1-4: . Ab4, F4, F4, Eb.

Vilia by Artie Shaw. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Artie Shaw. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1327). Here is Artie Shaw's delightfully quirky take on Vilia, from The Merry Widow by Franz Lehar. Being a Shaw chart it naturally features clarinet, with some smooth ensemble writing and a flowing sax soli too. The brass ranges are moderate, with no hidden surprises and Shaw's clarinet solo is written out in full, though, if preferred, your player can improvise from the chords. The reeds are scored CAATT, with the 4 saxes having clarinet doubles. However, the sax parts double sided, with a "no clarinet double" option on the reverse, in case your section doesn't all double. Style: Swing @ 145 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, C4.

Lover's Leap by Les Brown. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1325). Following many requests we are pleased to offer Lover's Leap. It is an up-tempo, bouncy swing chart from the postwar Les Brown orchestra featuring alto sax, piano and a cameo solo from trumpet in the shout chorus. The band is tightly scored, and the chart needs to be played with great precision to achieve the required feel. All of the articulations have been written out in the band parts to help you achieve the right result. The sax solo is written out on alto 1 and cross-cued on alto 2 (both parts have the chords too), should you wish to feature your unsung player a bit. The piano solo is written out in full though your player can always improvise from the chords, if preferred. The final trumpet flourish is scored onto the 3rd part. There are no sax doubles. Duration: 3 minutes. Style: Swing @ 190 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, A5, E6, E5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, Bb3.

Bolero by Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Fletcher Henderson. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1322). This arrangement of Ravel's Bolero is somewhat quirky, yet is an interesting swing take on a classical tune. Goodman recorded this chart in 1939 with a band that contained a 6-piece brass section, and we have augmented it to a full 8-piece section. Aside from the solo clarinet lines, the chart has no other instrument solos. Reeds are scored CAATT, with all saxes required to double on clarinet. The Goodman solos are written out in full, as played by BG. Style: . Swing @ 170 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, A#5, G5, D#5Trombones . 1-4: . A5, G4, E4, C4.

Careless Love arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1321). This version of Careless Love was recorded in 1959 by members of the Benny Goodman Orchestra. The chart is very much in the Goodman style and features solo spots by clarinet (on alto 1), tenor and piano. The clarinet and tenor solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise from the chords if preferred. The piano solo is ad-lib, but the final 2 measure modulation phrase which leads into the final shout chorus has been written out. Although not a hard chart to play, the brass gets quite high in the shout chorus, with lead trumpet to Eb6 and lead trombone to Bb4. The reeds are scored AATTB with alto 1 taking the clarinet solo lines. Swing @ 160 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, C6, Bb5, G5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, F4, Db4.

Loch Lomond by Benny Goodman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Maxwell Davis. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1320). Here is a great take on that well known Scottish traditional ditty "Loch Lomond". This chart is transcribed from the version done by members of the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1959 (Crown records CLP-5090) and features solo spots for Clarinet, Trumpet and Alto. The original solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise their own from the chords provided. We have augmented the brass to the full 8 voices and have written the Clarinet lines on the Alto 1 part. Saxes are scored for A/C, A, T, T, B and aside from Alto 1 there are no other Clarinet doubles. The chart is very straighforward, though Sax intonation needs to be watched in the unison first chorus. We have graded this chart Easy / Medium rather than Easy only because the lead Trumpet needs to reach top D and lead Trombone is to Ab.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, Bb5, A5, F5Trombones . 1-4: . Ab4, F4, D4, Bb3.

Down By The Old Mill Stream by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Fletcher Henderson. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1319). Down By The Old Mill Stream was written in 1908 by Tell Taylor, and this song has over the years become a bit of a stock standard for barbershop quartets. Benny Goodman recorded this up-tempo, hard swinging version of the tune in 1939 and it makes for a great dance chart. Trombones and Saxes share the melody honours in the first chorus, the Clarinet takes centre stage for the second, Alto and Trumpet feature in the third and the whole band rips for the shout. In this last chorus all reeds are required to double Clarinet. However, we have printed the AATT parts double-sided, with "no doubling required" alternate parts on the reverse. The Alto 1 and Trumpet 1 solos are written out in full, with chords provided. Another "must have" for the Benny Goodman lovers. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C#6, C6, A5, E5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, F4, D4.

Estrellita by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1318). Benny Goodman had many huge hits, yet some of his finest works remain in relative obscurity. Estrellita can be counted in this category, yet it is an absolutely beautiful piece, with a flowing melody that once heard makes you want to hum it for hours. We have reproduced this wonderful little chart for you here, and have expanded the brass up to 8 voices (from the original 6), making it playable by a full big band line-up. We have written out BG's lines "as played" by the master, and have written out the original second chorus Piano and Tenor solos too, though your players can improvise their own if preferred. The reeds are scored for CAATT and the brass ranges are moderate too. Neat, crisp plunger work is required in the brass, to keep the backings clean and tight. This chart is highly recommended. Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . B5, G5, E5, E5Trombones . 1-4: . A4, A4, A4, Bb3.

Frankie And Johnny edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Maxwell Davis. For big band. Swing. Medium Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1316). Frankie & Johnny is a lovely solo feature for Clarinet, Tenor and Trumpet. This particular version is as played by members of the Goodman orchestra and it bounces from start to finish. The opening chorus is sparse - just Clarinet & rhythm - before the chart lifts into full tutti at the first modulation. We have written out the Tenor & Trumpet solos in full, though your players can improvise their own from the chords too. The Clarinet part is written on Alto 1 and the other reeds are scored for ATTB.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . E6, C6, C6, G5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, G4.

I'll Be Seeing You by Harry James. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1313). If you are looking for a first rate ballad Trumpet feature, look no further. This Harry James chart is a cracker. We have adapted the original version to suit a standard 5444 line-up and have re-scored the original, removing the string lines, but retained the flavour by adding tin-muted trumpet lines for extra tonal colur. HJ's part is written "as played", as is the Tenor solo, though your player can improvise a solo using the chords provided. The intro is written in 3:4 time, instead of the very rubato opening of the original. Although this time signature is not strictly accurate, it makes playing the intro much easier for the Piano and Bass and will avoid performance errors. The opening Trumpet line is cued onto the Piano part too, so that your player can slot in behind it easily. This chart is big, fat and lush, and offers a chance for one of your Trumpet players to really shine as a soloist. There are no sax doubles.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C#6(G6), A5, F#5, C#5Trombones . 1-4: . B4, F#4, D#4, C#4.

Hour Of Parting by Glenn Miller. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Bill Finegan. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1308). Whilst never commercially recorded by the Miller band because the chart's playing time was too long to fit onto a 78rpm record, The Hour of Parting was an often played number in the Miller book. The original exquitite arrangement was by Bill Finegan and featured Tex Beneke's tenor. It has been recreated here for you, though the brass has been expanded to eight voices from the original six, whilst retaining the feel of the original. The as-played solos for tenor, trombone and trumpet are written out in full and the reeds are scored for CATTB/A. Miller's original section was CAATT, though a later version was CATT and baritone doubling alto. The baritone was introduced to add depth to the unison sax melody line before the bridge, though your player can stay on alto throughout if preferred. This is a hauntingly beatuiful chart which deserves a place in the band library of any lover of Miller. Style: Swing @ 100 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: C6, A5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, Db4, Bb3.

Swing Shift by Count Basie. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Buck Clayton. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1307). This chart has been transcribed from the 1944 Lang-Worth radio aircheck that the Basie Band did, though the band also recorded an early 1940s version too. The arrangement has been modified to a full 5/4/4/4 line-up. The melody and original arrangement is by Buck Clayton, though we think that the trumpet solo in this version was taken by Harry 'Sweets' Edison. The tenor solo is by Lester Young. Both solos are written out in full "as-played", though the Basie piano solo is left for your player to improvise.This chart is a fast & furious swinger which needs some good sectional discipline if it is to be performed well. There are no sax doubles. Duration: 3 mins 30 secs / Style: Swing @ 230 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, B5, F#5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, Eb4.

Liebestraum by Tommy Dorsey. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Carmen Mastren. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1305). Liebestraum, written by Franz Liszt, became a classic chart by the Tommy Dorsey orchestra, very much in the vein of Song of India, with trombone taking the melody solo in the first chorus. The reeds are scored to all double clarinets (with bari on bass clari), but we have printed the reed parts double sided, with a "no double" option on the reverse, though alto 1 still takes the clarinet solo. The solos in this chart are written out in full (clarinet, tenor, trombone & trumpet). Your players can improvise from the chords provided, if preferred. Duration: 3 mins, 15secs / Style: Swing @ 170 b.p.m. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: Bb5, G5, F5, D5Trombones 1-4: C5, G4, D4, Bb3.

Written by Jerry Gray and Miller's long-time pianist, Chummy MacGregor, "Solid as a Stonewall" is a bouncy up-tempo swinger that works equally well in a dance or concert setting.

If your band has an Alto player that you would like to showcase, this is the chart for you.

A rare, and very challenging chart from the Glenn Miller band, written by George Williams and Jerry Gray . This chart is quick , at 240+ beats per minute, and is best played in 2. There are ad-lib solos for Tenor, Alto, Drums and Trumpet (written on the 3rd part for a change), and a slightly hair-raising sax solo where really nimble fingers are needed. Make no mistake, this is a tough chart to play well, but will be a great addition to your Miller Library, and something a little different to play for your audiences when they call for another Miller tune. There are no sax doubles. Style: . Swing @ 240+ b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . C6, A5, Eb6, Ab5Trombones . 1-4: . Ab4, G4, G4, F4.
