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. Another great transcription from Jon Harpin.

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.

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.

Here is Frank Sinatra's version of the Irving Berlin classic, Let's Face the Music and Dance.

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.
