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: . D6, D6, D6 (A5), A5Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, G4, G4, C4Vocal Key: BbMale Vocal Range: C3 - Eb4 (10 steps as sung).

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. Style: . Swing @ 130 b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: . D6, E6, C6, C6Trombones . 1-4: . Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, E4Vocal key: BbVocal Range: F3 - Bb4 (11 steps as sung).

Pennsylvania Polka by The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with vocal trio. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2323). This tune was first recorded by the Andrews Sisters for their 1942 film "Give Out, Sisters". Though initially not a great success, the song steadily gained popularity and grew to become one of their best known numbers. This transcription is true to the original studio chart, though the band parts have been augmented to bring it to a full 5444 big band line-up. The vocal lines are "as sung" by Maxine, Patty and LaVerne. The reeds are scored for two clarinets, two tenors and baritone throughout. Whilst the band parts are not particularly tricky in themselves, they need to be played with good discipline and precision, else the chart will sound ragged.Ranges:Trumpets . 1-4: Bb5, Ab5, Eb5, G5Trombones . 1-4: .

Walkin' My Baby Back Home by Natalie Cole. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Bill Holman. For big band with vocal duet. Swing. Difficult. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2322). Transcribed from Natalie Cole's "Still Unforgettable" album, this chart is a really clever fusion of old and new, as it combines elements of Nat King Cole's original recording along with his daughters' fresher interpretation. The chart is scored for reeds to double Flutes and Clarinets in the intro (F, F, C, C, BC) though we have cued alternate sax lines here, eliminating the need for the doubles. The vocal is scored for a boy / girl duet, as per the record version. We have rated it Medium / Advanced only because the Trumpet lines are high in their range, with lead to top E and 2nd & 3rd to top C#. Aside from this it is a fairly easy chart to play down. The vocal keys are A, modulating to Db and D. Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: E6, C#6, C#6, B5Trombones 1-4: Bb4, F#4, E4, D4Vocal Key: A to Db to DVocal Range: Ab3 - C5, Nat C3 - E4.

Accentuate The Positive by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2317). Transcribed from her Harold Arlen songbook album, this stunning Ella Fitzgerald chart was originally arranged by the late, great Billy May and is an absolute classic. We have simplified the sax lines behind the opening verse to remove the instrument doubles, whilst retaining the flavour of the original concept. and made a small Trumpet voicing change in the second measure of the chart. Aside from this, the arrangement is as per the original. Ella's vocal line is written out "as sung", though your vocalist is free to interpret it in her own style. Aside from the written two measure Piano fill in the verse there are no solos, as it is an out-and-out vocal feature. Lead Alto is required to double Clarinet for the 16 measure instrumental section in the middle of the chart, but a Soprano can also be used here instead. The vocal key is C thoughou.

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.
